Welcome to the teaching of writing and literature at UH. This site has been built specifically for instructors in the English Department's Lower Division program. We hope that it will be helpful as you participate in perhaps the most important function of the University - providing, through our teaching, a first-class education to our undergraduate students.
Whether this is your first teaching assignment or you have already had some teaching experience, we hope that the information and guidance contained in this site will be useful to you. It is intended to serve as a resource for you to draw upon for practical information and advice about specific aspects of the pedagogical process. You will refer to it all year long. If you have any additional questions or suggestions for material that we should include in this site, please let us know.
Our goal is to make your teaching years here as productive as possible, both for you and for your University of Houston students. We welcome you to your new responsibilities and your new opportunities.
Wyman H. Herendeen, Chair of the English Department
