My pedagogy centers on what I’ve come to call the “Mythbuster’s Approach”:  one of the slogans for the show, and in my classrooms, is that failure is always an option. Whether I am teaching introductory composition, digital humanities, literary theory, or seventeenth-century poetry, my classes always focus on experimentation, testing, and iterative and productive failure. A few sample syllabi are here, but in the spirit of Adam and Jamie, are subject to change and revision at any time.
