This course is designed to assist graduate students in history to
improve their teaching skills and prepare themselves for a career in
college teaching.  The first half of the class will focus on those
aspects of teaching faced by an A.I. (leading discussions,
alternatives to discussion, grading, the cognitive and emotional
development of college students, and interactions with
undergraduates).  This second half will deal with course
preparation, lecturing, and exam construction.  Each student will
prepare a syllabus, exams, and other course materials for a course
in his or her field.  In addition, there will be weekly readings,
discussion, a series of short papers, and the opportunity to gain
practical experience in lecturing and leading.
