A few of you have talked to me about having trouble getting some of the books for this course. The university is adamant that you purchase textbooks through the official university bookstore. Beware of sites that promise (and deliver) free PDFs of all kinds of books, such as: These sites might seem perfectly helpful in that they deliver exactly what they promise, but they are also free. I can't remember what I was saying. Anyway.

How to write a literature review. 1. What is a literature review? A literature review is a description of the literature relevant to a particular field or topic. DO: Look at the relationships between the views and draw out themes. DON'T: Just write a list or quote authors without citing them.

Socratic questions can be used in influencing, leading, and coaching to stimulate critical thinking. 1. Clarifying thinking & understanding: Can you give me an example? Could you explain further? What is the problem you are trying to solve? 2. Challenging assumptions: Is that always the case? Are you assuming...? How could you verify or disprove that? What would happen if...? 3. Examining evidence & rationale: Why do you say that? How do you know? Why? Source: www.jamesbowman.me

Last year a professor saw that my American Novel syllabus had no white dudes on it. They told me the reading list was "too ethnic" & I should add white men if I wanted to look appealing on the job market. I said nah. And then I made this. ~ Yvette De Chavez (www.yvettedechavez.com)
"At the end of this course, students will be able to..." SOCRATES: "...know that they know nothing." EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATOR: "I'm sorry, but that is not a measurable learning outcome." ~ @apollodorus9
Requiring doctor's notes to excuse absences due to illness is inherently classist in a county w/o universal healthcare and I really wish we talked about it more. ~ @fortunafiasco
I just paused to consider my Introductory Sociology syllabus. The ambition of #sociology is really something to behold. ~ Lester Andrist
My writing prof said something about critique today that stuck with me: if you give a critique that results in the writer feeling like they never wanna write again, it is you who has failed as a critiquer, bc you've extinguished someone's desire to create. as a critiquer, your job is not to "make this piece of writing better" but to understand what the writer wants to achieve and help them to achieve it. ~ @nahyutas
