In English 498A students will meet twice weekly on campus (MW 10:30-12:20) in a writing-intensive capstone seminar focused on learning effective methods of working with public school students, exploring some central challenges and opportunities for public education, and using writing and presentation to inquire into, develop and communicate your thinking about these issues.
