Assignments included memos, emails, resumes and cover letters, elevator speeches, backgrounder white papers, proposals, recommendation reports, project reports, and writing for specific components of project production.

Introductory Composition: English 106
 
Purdue University, Department of English, Fall 2011
 Spring 2013 (four sections)
Using a syllabus approach called “UR@,” I encouraged students to write in a variety of genres that
highlight situatedness, new media, design, and culture, with an emphasis on learning through doing, play, and experimentation. Assignments included essays, research papers, editorials, annotated bibliographies, documentary videos, online journals, and digital collections.
 Advanced Composition: English 108
Purdue University, Department of English, Fall 2012 (one section)
Drawing from service learning theories, this experiential learning / community engagement course emphasized environmental stewardship. While completing service projects for West Lafayette's Celery Bog Nature Area, students wrote place studies and environmentally-themed editorials, studied civic engagement theory, and practiced environmental communication strategies.
College Writing I: English 180
Western Illinois University, Department of English, Fall 2010
 Spring 2011 (four sections)
The syllabus approach for this course encouraged students to develop their personal writing into academic genres through narratives, opinion papers, research papers, and timed essay exams.
