The Assignment

For Dr. Sylvia Henneberg's ENG 499 Capstone class, students are assigned a research paper worth 30% of their grade.

"This paper seeks to combine teaching and research skills by having students write a 6-10 page paper explaining how they would teach a text of their choice and which resources they would use. Students [then] contribute an essay to the "Approaches" series by contemplating what is already in place... Students should think of this not as a plan for a classroom session at a particular grade level but as a contribution to the field of teaching in general."
