Call to Apply: Graduate Student Fellowship in the Art of Teaching Writing


The Daniel E. Koshland, Jr. Graduate Student Fellowship in the Art of Teaching Writing is a grant designed to provide graduate students teaching Reading and Composition courses in Fall 2019 the opportunity to improve existing and develop new pedagogical skills and practices. Twelve students will each receive a $2,000 stipend to participate in a seminar led by Joseph Harris, a leading scholar in compositional studies.  

The Daniel E. Koshland, Jr. Graduate Student Fellowship begins with a week-long intensive seminar, The Art of Teaching Writing. The seminar will be held from May 20-24, 2019 at the Townsend Center for the Humanities. During the Fall 2019 semester, students are required to attend monthly meetings of the seminar and to post occasional comments to the Art of Teaching Writing blog. In December, students will attend a seminar to discuss their teaching experiences and reflect on ways to improve teaching writing on the Berkeley campus.
 
Applications are due Friday, March 22, 2019 – received by 5:00 pm at artofwriting@berkeley.edu.
