Pedagogy and Intellectual Work.
Five universities in New York State (SUNY--State University of New York at Stony Brook, Syracuse, Cornell, Binghamton, and New York Universities--are involved in a 3-year project to better prepare graduate students to become teachers. The State University of New York, Stony Brook, English Department is providing graduate teaching assistants with intensive faculty mentoring. Though much time and energy have gone into providing these students with critical feedback about their efforts to become scholars and researchers, too little time is spent providing "criticism" toward their efforts to become good teachers. Ways must be found to provide this feedback and to comment critically on pedagogy. Teaching in close collaboration with colleagues, using largely the same materials and assignments, and meeting regularly, especially to discuss student writing, may help achieve this goal. (CR)
