Provide sample essays (A-F) for grading sessions
Attend all meetings
Much of this semester's work is aimed at preparing your teaching/professional portfolio. During the spring semester, we will be scheduling individual final conferences with each one of you. During this "exit interview," we'll review your final teaching/professional portfolio together and talk about your plans for the future.
When we meet as a group, we'll be meeting in EH 21 or in EH 16; we will let you know in advance where to go. On those Mondays when no formal meeting is scheduled, your advisors will be available to confer about grading, lesson planning, and preparing your teaching portfolio.
