Pam has taught writing-intensive courses to undergraduate students since 2007. She creates accessible, inclusive assignments that capitalize on students’ own interests and experiences. She uses each assignment to build to the next, from short response papers to argumentative essays to research projects. She provides feedback at each stage of the writing process, within and across assignments; she also guides students through the peer review process. You can read more about her teaching practices here.

Pam’s recent courses include first-year seminars (centered on globalization, tourism, and truth), writing-focused courses (focused on elements of argument, research strategies, and pedagogy), and politics courses (concentrating on justice, international organization, and human rights). She also has a CELTA Certificate, the most-recognized qualification for teaching English, which provided research-based strategies informing her work with multilingual writers.
