Both quantitative and qualitative depending
on the focus of inquiry. I especially enjoy rhetorical criticism and
public discourse analysis.
I endeavor to create substantive, challenging courses and a classroom
environment that fosters student interaction and free expression.
I strive to be fair and show genuine respect and concern for my students. I believe that humor in the classroom is essential.
