RHE 398T Course Description

RHE 398T is a course in writing theory and pedagogy developed specifically for new instructors of RHE 306. It begins with a three-day workshop in August before classes start and follows with a semester-long colloquium that meets twice a week in the fall. During the workshop, instructors will develop general course plans for the semester and detailed plans for the opening weeks of class, all in the context of larger discussions about rhetorical principles and pedagogical practices. The weekly colloquium will serve as a forum for the discussion both of assigned landmark essays in rhetorical theory, writing theory, and critical pedagogy, and of practical classroom matters (giving feedback on papers, running successful in-class discussions, teaching research and documentation, using class listservs and blogs, etc.). Late in the semester, instructors will draw on their RHE 306 classroom experience and their colloquium participation to design a RHE 309K course proposal.

Attendance and satisfactory performance in the August Workshop and fall colloquium are required to pass the course and conditions of employment.
