Applicants should have ideas about how to infuse class with energy and excitement. Editors are encouraged to apply.

Sophomore Essay Writing (2-3): Sophomores transition from the sentences they examined during freshman grammar to building paragraphs and, eventually, structuring an essay.

Instructors will be provided with extensively developed curricula; however, applicants must bring creative ideas about writing pedagogy to invigorate class instruction.
