I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of courses during my graduate studies and have the ability and interest in teaching other courses related to linguistics and the German language and culture. Please find an overview of these various types of courses below. Example syllabi and a complete list of courses taught can also be found below.
I have taught a variety of introductory and advanced German-language courses, including first- through fourth-semester courses designed to give students a solid foundation in the German language and begin working towards a German major/minor.
I have also taught general education (German) culture courses and am also prepared to teach higher level culture courses in both English and German, covering topics such as German literature, the Holocaust, and the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Online & Intensive Language courses
In addition to semester-long courses, I have also taught online and 2.5-week intensive language courses over the summer for students wishing to learn the language quickly for academic and/or professional purposes.
My interest and background in linguistics has prepared me to teach a variety of courses in linguistics, including foundational courses (e.g. phonology and syntax) and more specialized courses (e.g. typology, historical linguistics, and language contact).
