Karen Dodwell, Ph.D.

Senior Lecturer

Department of English

UT San Antonio

As a college English teacher I try to engage students in two ways in the classroom: I explain and model basic knowledge in my discipline, and I create opportunities for students to use basic knowledge in classroom discussions and in formal and informal writing. The goal is to promote the critical thinking and creativity that produces scholars in my field and lively readers and writers in general.
