Cynthia Davidson talks about her writing experience, "It's been said recently that learning one thing on a very deep level can create an educated individual. For a very long time, I wasn't interested in much other than poetry. Learning to write it taught me how to read deeply, expansively, and creatively. The motto on my Facebook page is "likes to play" and that describes very accurately my own education. All the important stuff was learned pretty much painlessly, I have to say." view Cynthia's teaching and showcase eportfolio

Cathleen Rowley begins her teaching philosophy, "I consider myself successful as a teacher of writing when I see that students question the material they are reading and question what they have written—when they are not satisfied with initial attempts and strive to go deeper. I believe that the ability to write clearly and to analyze written texts are the most important skills that a student can develop in college, and that they can carry the lessons learned in my class to their other classes and to their lives beyond the classroom. Language is power and the ability to use language well gives the students power and choices in their lives." ...Read more about her philosophy and teaching.

|Ying Xiong talks about her first experience with teaching and assessment, "I started my experience with assessment years ago when I taught English as a foreign language at North China University of Technology. My students often came to me with questions like "why can't I carry a conversation in English even though I score perfectly on exams," or "How can I know what I need to improve." Those eager-to-learn students need more than just test scores and letter grades to help them understand what they've learned and how they can learn better." ...Find out more about Ying's professional and personal goals|
