"Whether I’m teaching a literature or writing course, I structure it around problems and controversies that are rich with questions for which there are no easy answers. I want students to encounter uncertainty, to become curious, and then to let that curiosity drive their learning. Students also write a lot in my classes because writing is such a good tool for transforming curiosity and confusion into clear ideas, interpretations, and arguments. It’s tremendously gratifying to help students recognize that writing is not just for recording what they already know or reporting someone else’s ideas, but for exploring the boundaries of what they can think or say."
