Bio

Jody R. Rosen, an associate professor in the English Department at New York City College of Technology, holds an AB from Brown University and a PhD and Women’s Studies Certificate from the CUNY Graduate Center. She currently serves as Co-Director of the OpenLab, and previously as a Writing Across the Curriculum coordinator. Through both of these positions, she has had the opportunity to strengthen community at City Tech through technology and writing. Teaching courses in composition and literature, she values the role of open technology and writing in all courses, and integrates open digital pedagogy and writing-intensive and communication-intensive approaches into her teaching. Her scholarship focuses on narrative theory, Modernisms, and gender and sexuality studies. Her work has been published in the Virginia Woolf Miscellany and in Forces of Nature: Natural(-izing) Gender and Gender(-ing) Nature in the Discourses of Western Culture. Her creative work appears on One-Hundred-Plus Words. She is currently working on a manuscript on 1920s women’s fiction, in which she considers the function of repetition as a subversive narrative mode in marriage-plot revisions emerging from the post-World War I era, focusing on novels by H.D., Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Nella Larsen, Edith Wharton, and Virginia Woolf.

SPE 1330: Effective Speaking

SPE 1330: Effective Speaking

SPE 1330 (Effective Speaking) is designed to achieve two broad aims. First, we seek to advance your knowledge of the public speaking process. We will accomplish this aim through a combination of written assignments that are designed to prepare you for public speaking situations. Second, the course is designed to strengthen your skills as a speaker. Your skills will be advanced through the active participation in a series of speaking assignments. Your skills and knowledge will grow as the semester unfolds. As a part of this process, you should begin to develop a positive attitude toward public speaking and your skills as a speaker. Following the completion of the course, we encourage you to build on your understanding of the public speaking process so that you can continue to develop as a speaker.

By the end of the semester graded work will total approximately 3750 words (or 15 typed pages). Students must submit acceptable papers and pass the final exam in order to pass the course.
