    Rethinking First Year English as First Year Writing Across the Curriculum
    Double Helix, 1

After graduation from Rutgers University, a stint on Wall Street, and several years as a music teacher, Will Higgins returned to graduate school at the College of New Jersey where he earned his Masters in Teaching. Students in his First Year English classes will learn to evaluate and sort through the vast sea of information available today as well as learn to form coherent and viable arguments. Plan to think out of the box as you discuss and analyze compelling readings supplemented with current multimedia materials. Combine this with his engaging writing instruction, and your First Year English experience will be memorable. You will work with your peers to critique and edit your rough drafts and collaborate with classmates as you improve your writing and communication skills. Will has been teaching at UMass Dartmouth for over ten years and also teaches English at Dartmouth High School.
