The AALCI Course Packet

 One subtle pedagogical innovation I made this summer was the development of a course packet. In the past, I distributed print-outs here and there throughout the duration of the Institute. But this time, I decided to experiment with a different approach.

I wanted to bring a body of materials and collected wisdom of past writings together in one document. This course packet represents the result. The contents include "partial chronologies" by established professors and past students; sample professional/personal statements; lists of critical approaches and keywords, a notebook on slavery and liberation, a timeline of African American poetry, and much more.
