Other than tests, how would you assess student learning?
I would assess student learning by asking questions, giving out worksheets, creative assignments, and papers. That way I can see where everyone is at individually and as a group. I would make sure that they are taking in and understanding the information.
Why do you want a career as a history professor?
I have known that I wanted to teach since I was young. I had my own classroom at home and just fell in love with it. I have had a passion for history since I was young as well. I want to teach at a college level and I am excited to teach the subject I am most passionate about.
Why are you the best candidate for this position?
I have my doctorate, and that was after several years of studying, here and abroad. I have a good understanding of different cultures and of their history. I believe it is important to preserve history for future generations, and I want to be apart of that.
