This class prepares you to serve as a Teaching Assistant for English 5. The main purpose of this class is to give you the time and space to explore teaching materials for English 5. You will think towards a syllabus of your own, guided by previous versions of the course and previous instructors.

We will work through a series of topics that frame, philosophically and practically, elements of pedagogy that may be useful to you, with the aid of this year?s English 5 instructors, who will provide practical advice, supplemented with useful resources. We'll read at least one text, Craft in the Real World.


Course requirements: (1) prompt and regular attendance and participation; (2) reading of assigned texts and the Manual for English 5 F / P (3) a demo syllabus for English 5
