TEACHING EXPERIENCE A.   Teaching Interests and Specialties : Rhetorical theory and criticism Argumentation Media studies Social movement communication University Courses Taught  (approximately twenty different courses): Saginaw Valley State University (Fall 2012-Present) COMM 490: Communication & Social Movements Cont inuously returning to the question of how the subject matter applies to students’ lives, this advanced undergraduate seminar focuses on the role of social movement communication in cultural, political, and institutional change. We cover concepts, theories, and case illustrations explaining the tactics and strategies of social movements, their activists, and their opposition. Additionally, the course compares and contrasts similarities and differences between historical and contemporary movements.    4 COMM 365: Language, Thought & Behavior in Civic Life With a focus on contemporary rhetorical theory, this undergraduate course examines the intersections, uses, and functions of language, thought, and behavior, and applies them in civic affairs contexts. We consider how intention, meaning, perception, ideology, nonverbal symbolism, and behavioral consciousness converge to shape the civic identities that people, groups, organizations, institutions, and nations give to themselves. A focus on civic  affairs means that we will look at public communication through which people come together as affected citizens to discuss issues, policies, practices, and institutions related to their mutual well-being. COMM 315: Persuasion and Attitude Change This course equips students with theoretical, critical, and ethical approaches to their reception and creation of persuasive communication messages of a variety of forms. As an Oral Performance category course, this class also includes public speaking assignments. Throughout the semester, we examine the role and interplay of nonverbal, verbal, visual, and written symbols comprising cultural, psychological, and political processes of attitude change. The course considers persuasion in various contexts ranging from face-to-face interpersonal communication to social media communication to television advertising. Across these contexts, we weigh what it means to persuade ethically in a multicultural and digitally mediated world. COMM 270: Communication in Marketplace and Media Functionining as a survey course, COMM 270 provides an introduction to the historical evolution of mass media communication and its effects in the United States. Paying close attention to questions of ethics across media industries, the course fosters basic media literacy skills  —students’ capacities to critically evaluate and responsibly create messages in today’s global high-tech world. The course examines media and culture as intertwined and constantly changing in relation to political economic and legal systems. We also investigate journalism and major changes in news-making practices brought about by advertising, entertainment, and the Internet. COMM 105C: Introduction to Communication: Argumentation (Faculty Anchor) Argumentation is an introductory course of study intended to accomplish two general goals: (1) to acquaint students with principles of argumentation theory; and (2) to provide students with opportunities to observe, evaluate and improve their own argumentation skills. The course provides students with theory and practice in critical thinking through argumentation and oral expression. We will examine positional statements, both oral and written, evaluate claims, promote critical analysis, identify roles and responsibilities of decision-makers, and explore the development and maintenance of credibility.    5 COMM 105B: Introduction to Communication: Public Speaking Public Speaking is a course designed to provide students with theory and practice in organizing, researching, and presenting informational and persuasive messages in a variety of  public communication contexts. This performance based course is intended to accomplish three general goals: (1) to introduce students to the planning, research and presentation of meaningful messages for a variety of contexts; (2) to develop students' skills in research, critical thinking, and basic argumentation; and (3) to improve student competency and confidence in using both verbal and nonverbal communication.
