I designed this series on teaching college-level writing for you.

Many teachers around the US have adopted the ideas and techniques described here.

I hope you find the series useful.

  1. The Intro
  2. The Theories
  3. The Diagnosis
  4. Why I Teach Cool
  5. The Essay, The Problem
  6. Every Sentence is a Question
  7. Don’t Grade Too Much
  8. Trying Not to Be Racist
  9. Run Successful Writing Workshops

PS Every writing teacher should probably own these books (shown below). I think they are indispensable.

If you are new to the teaching game, start with They Say, I Say, then read Engaging Ideas, and then move on to (the truly challenging, and amazing) Critical Passages.

And then, if you are interested in Francis Christensen’s dense theories of sentence development, take a look at my guide to prose style, too:
