My training in archaeology and the classical languages situates my research and teaching at the crossroads of archaeology, classics, and art history. This website contains the material included in my teaching portfolio, including my teaching philosophy statement, curriculum vitae, examples of course syllabi that I have developed and supplementary materials including grading rubrics, writing exercises, and resources for students such as thematically organized bibliographies. In my teaching, I strive to foster concepts and skills basic to intellectual pursuit through the lens of archaeological thought and practice.
I developed my pedagogical approach through my participation in the training seminars offered by the Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning at Brown University, developing syllabi and assignments, and thinking critically about my goals for teaching and how to achieve them successfully.
My position as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Classics at Florida State University (2015-17) has provided me with the opportunity to develop and teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Having just finished my first year of teaching and looking forward to another year at FSU, I am happy to say that it has certainly been a learning experience, and, fortunately, a rewarding one! You can find the syllabuses, course activities, and learning goals I developed and implemented in my classes, as well as potential courses that I have developed, through the dropdown menus along the top of this page.
My personal research has greatly informed my teaching interests and approaches. You can read more about it on my website at www.sarahecraft.com.
