Information for Submitting Course Proposals

We encourage you to submit your themed writing course for our review. We especially encourage second year teachers to apply. The selection process for 211- 213 is competitive, but we intend for this process to help you broaden your teaching experiences. We look forward to your exciting proposals.

We welcome conversation about your ideas. Feel free to use us as a resource.


The deadline for submitting a course proposal for a 200-level course (211/213) is October 20th  at midnight. Please  submit your course proposal through the form located here.


A 200-word course description with a course title. Please see the English Department website for sample course descriptions, available under “student resources.’

A paragraph describing the connection your course has to the writing assignments and activities of the course. Include a handful of readings so that we can get a sense of what you would be reading in relation to the writing.

A paragraph discussing how your course will build on what a student learned/practiced in English 111x. Specifically, address how you will be approaching “information literacy’ development in the course.

A paragraph highlighting your enthusiasm and excitement for teaching the course.
