Pedagogy: Prep and Practice

2300 [CRN: 15664]

In the second year of the three-year MFA Playwriting Program, students are required to teach undergraduates Introductory and Intermediate Playwriting. This course readies MFAs for their teaching in advance of their time at the head of the classroom, provides them with mentorship during the conduct of their teaching, and assesses their experience at the end of their assignments. It is an intensive seminar, where the head of the Playwriting Program meets with students individually and as a team, sharing in the evolutions of curricular design and practice, offering close comment and tailored assignments (suggested readings; writing tasks).
