New Essay, “Baba Yaga in the Classroom”

So to Speak is a wonderful journal at George Mason University that publishes feminist writing and art. For their blog, I wanted to write a short essay about my experiences of bringing Feminism into my classroom. In the process, I dug into my own life, and also into folklore and Fairy Tale, where I have found so much inspiration and beauty. This essay means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll read and share.

Innovations in Teaching and Learning

This September, I’ll be co-presenting a 90-minute workshop at the George Mason University Innovations in Teaching and Learning Conference. Our workshop title: “Is it true? Helping students assess information credibility.”

Seeking out and recognizing evidence-based information online is very important to me, and I strive to create classroom situations wherein my Advanced Comp students may develop these skills.

It should be fun! Come by!
