"I rely on a combination of whole-class and small-group instruction. I create a space for guided and independent practice. I emphasize the close reading of primary and secondary texts as well as note-taking and analytical writing."

"Berklee students just they bring such an energy and such an enthusiasm for learning. I admire especially their willingness to take positive intellectual risks, to engage with material that is well beyond their comfort zone and well outside of what they came to college to study. They are musicians first, but I was thrilled last semester at how enthusiastically they were willing to dive into the study of things that happened 200 years ago."
