Associate Teaching Professor Aaron Block has been selected for a CSSH 2018-19 Outstanding Teaching Award. Congratulations, Aaron!
From the announcement:
“With this award, the college recognizes Aaron Block as an exceptional teacher whose student-centered course design, assignments, and assessment practices epitomize writing as a social activity. By working together to identify goals, create rubrics, and complete projects, students shape the learning environment through their writing and rhetorical analysis. The projects in Professor Block’s classes challenge students to take risks, expand their definition of writing, and recognize the various ways they can contribute to conversations that are important to them. Professor Block’s commitment to collaboration extends to his leadership in the Writing Program through his active engagement on committees, in workshops, and when mentoring new faculty.”
