This course has two main purposes: 1) to provide Associate

for connecting reading and writing, preparing assignments, and
evaluating student writing; 2) to engage new instructors in
reflective practice through readings, speakers, and discussion of a
variety of approaches and materials.
Requirements include regular attendance of proseminar and consultant
meetings; observations of other W131 teachers, and a portfolio of
teaching materials and a reflective essay.
Texts: Photocopy collection of materials will be available.
This proseminar, required of all AIís teaching W131 at IU for the
first time, is offered for three credits on a Satisfactory/Non-
satisfactory basis; the three credits for the course may be applied
for the doctoral degree, but not for the M.A.
