Graduate Teaching Fellows Mentoring Program

Our Mission:

Learn

  • As part of the Graduate Program in English, you’ll take a wide range of courses in Scholarly Methods, English and American Literature, and Theory.
  • Graduate Teaching Assistants learn the craft of teaching from seasoned professionals.
  • Stipends and full tuition waivers are available.

Collaborate

  • As a member of a teaching team, you’ll receive guidance and support from experienced and engaging teachers. Mentors, GTAs, and GTFs help each other to succeed in the classroom.
  • Join a community of teachers, exchange ideas, share your experiences, and work directly with students.

Teach

  • In your second year in the classroom, you’ll take charge of your own class and receive guidance from a faculty mentor and teaching team.
  • Graduate Teaching Fellows design classroom activities, create grading criteria, and evaluate student progress, while developing their own philosophy of teaching.
  • Applicants should contact Dr. Amanda Kellogg, Graduate Program Director, or Dr. Frank Napolitano, GTF Program Coordinator. 

Welcome, New Graduate Teaching Assistants!

We're so excited to be working with such a wonderful group of GTAs, who will begin their journeys as teachers by assisting with Core 101-Essentials of Written and Oral Communication, and Core 102-Advanced Written and Oral Communication.
