Teaching first-year composition through COVID-19
National Center for Science and Civic Engagement
While teaching my first-year composition course during the ongoing COVID pandemic was challenging, it offered a unique opportunity to teach SENCER ideals that often seem very abstract to students. How to feed a rapidly increasing population while sustaining the health of the planet was the topic that I had planned for my science-and-society-themed course. I intended to focus on the 2019 report by the EAT-Lancet Commission, a group of international scientists, who came together to solve the intertwined issues of climate change and world hunger.
