Course Description: 

 

This course is intended for all new Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) in the Political Science department, and is meant to be taken simultaneously with your first semester of teaching as a GSI. The course functions as a participatory workshop, meets for two hours each week, and must be taken on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis. Although the course is intended for first-time GSIs, it is not a course in "how to be a GSI," but rather how to be an effective political science teacher, now and at later steps in your professional career. Workshop time will be divided among presentations by the instructor, discussion of required readings, and discussion of weekly assignments in relation to challenges encountered by GSIs in the course of their teaching.
