Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 8.42.16 PMI have taught a variety of college composition and writing courses at three universities. At University of Denver, I teach required first-year writing courses on rhetoric and academic writing and in writing and research. I also teach in the First-Year Seminar Program at DU as well as in the Minor in Writing Practices. At the University of Michigan I taught first-year composition, upper-level argumentation, and professional writing—all of which are housed in the English Department Writing Program. Prior to teaching at University of Michigan, I taught six sections of required first-year composition at Salisbury University focusing on personal narrative, researched academic arguments, and reflective writing. Course websites, PDF versions of selected course syllabi, and examples of student work* are available on the individual pages for each course and can be accessed using the links in the drop down menu above. Feel free to make use of these materials in your own teaching or to contact me with questions at aschia@umich.edu. I’m always happy to talk pedagogy 🙂
