Resources for Faculty

Fall 2021


Spring 2021 Events

The Composition Program at Appalachian State is proud of the expert teaching of its faculty. In order to develop

these attributes, we offer robust faculty development, teaching materials and support, peer mentoring groups to encourage reflective teaching, and strong collaborations between our faculty.


In line with the collaborative nature of our program, we would like for all faculty who have suggestions, additions or materials for these faculty resource pages to please send these to Jessie Blackburn ( or Bethany Mannon (

Reading Day Retreat

Host: Bethany Mannon and Jessie Blackburn

Thursday, 4/29

We'll debrief from our work during the 2020-2021 year, including our program's huge strides in anti-racist pedagogy, online writing instruction, and trauma-informed pedagogy. After these discussions, we'll set individual and program-wide goals for continuing these conversations and we'll plan for our return to the classroom in Fall 2021.
