What is your style of teaching?
I seek to create an atmosphere of joyful learning whereby students become intrigued by new ideas and are inspired to examine, research, analyze, and express.
What materials and media do you use in the classroom?
In addition to lectures, I use carefully selected films to capture a topic's issues and themes, thereby creating a complex, multi-dimensional presentation.
What is the most engaging assignment you give?
Which is best:to read, or to write about, or to eat international foods such as Ethiopian injera? We do all three at restaurants run by refugees and immigrants.
When grading a student, what do you look for?
I look for depth of knowledge, articulate expression, critical analysis, creative envisioning with skillful execution, and innovative presentation.
What kind of student would love your class?
A student who is open, creative, and flexible; who knows the benefit of research, writing, and reading; and who enjoys the creative and artistic process.
