H580 : for history graduate students only

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).  The 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.
