Graduate Teaching Assistant

University of Louisville

I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant for two semesters of TA 207 - Enjoyment of Theatre. This class met as a large lecture group on Mondays and Wednesdays, and I would teach the small group sessions on Fridays. This responsibility included administering and grading tests, collecting and grading papers, and evaluating individual and group presentations. In the fall semester (2010) I was in charge of two sections of small group, totaling roughly 50 students. In the spring (2011), I was in charge of three small group sections, totalling roughly 75 students.

My work was supervised by Dr. Russell Vandenbrouke and Dr. Amy Steiger. Each observed one day of my small group sections.
