COURSES

  • English 105 This course is a theme-based workshop that seeks to strengthen students’ skills in writing for academic purposes. We focus on documenting sources, close reading and textual analysis of published and student work in a variety of styles and genres, peer-review, and composing and revising original work.

  • Expository Writing This is a genre specific workshop that allows students to focus more intently on specific research techniques and to build skills in composing creative and critical nonfiction prose. Individual courses may have varying foci depending on the faculty. Robin has taught the class with a focus on writing for the arts, which included weekly field trips to museums and art exhibitions in the area. She has also focused on nature writing, incorporating weekly hikes in Glen Helen, along with trips to other nature preserves and parks in the region.

  • Introduction to Cinema This course offers students the opportunity to “read” the cinematic text as a distinct literary form. Students watch, discuss, and critique a variety of films from various countries and periods. Students are introduced to film criticism and common critical terms used in close analysis of cinematic texts.
