Additional Work

I also lead regular lecture-style evening classes on a variety of subjects through the University of Wisconsin Department of Continuing Studies. I am also developing two UW-affiliated online courses: History 393: Slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction; and, History 227: The History of Race and Ethnicity.

UW Writing Lab Materials
These one-sheet handouts are used by the the University of Wisconsin’s History Department Writing Lab. They were active when I tutored students there during spring semester 2016. I offer them in the spirit of helping anyone looking for tips on writing their college history papers or exams.
