The seminar will be a practical workshop designed to help GSIs develop the expertise and confidence needed to teach well. Readings will consist of short articles on social science pedagogy and of actual course materials — syllabi, assignments, student papers, and instructor comments. The latter materials will be drawn from the courses that seminar members are teaching currently, as well as from courses taught by other instructors.
