History Grad student in Ottawa: BA Honours History Carleton University Masters Candidate

Methodology

I believe in instilling in every student that a knowledge of history is of vital importance to them as the key to understanding the way in which human beings shape the world around them, but I also believe in doing it in the most encouraging and engaging way. I don't expect students to know ahead of time, as a teacher I expect to enlighten, not lecture. I ask questions of the student and expect questions from them. I also encourage independent thinking and not taking everything at face value both in the past and the present.

Background

I hold an BA Honours in History from Carleton University and am currently working on my Masters thesis, my historical interests include a little bit of almost everywhere and everything. I have experience TA-ing history to non-majors and human rights courses. I love to inspire a love of history.

Philip's Resume

Education: BA Honours History Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario.
MA History Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario (current, anticipated graduation November 2018)

Work Experience: TA Global History, Department of Global and International Affairs, Carleton University
TA Introduction to Human Rights, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, Carleton University

I have experience in conducting tutorial group sessions and grading/evaluation. My style emphasizes imparting the relevance of the subject matter to the lives of my students. Global History is a course designed to introduce non-majors to the last 500 years. Human Rights emphasizes current event issues within contexts of greatest relevance to students.
