What is a Teaching Circle?
At UCCS, Teaching Circles are groups of 4-8 faculty members who meet at least two times during the semester to discuss readings and activities related to their teaching.
Would you like to join a Teaching Circle?
- A copy of the book is provided.
- Mark your calendar and be available for sessions.
- Prepare for meetings by reading the chapters selected by the Team Lead.
- During each meeting, the Teaching Circles will discuss the readings and share strategies and activities to integrate into courses.

Helping students grow as writers is hard work! It’s even more difficult when we hold on to bad ideas about writing—things we’ve heard and learned that don’t help students succeed. If you’d like to interrogate those ideas and think about new possibilities, join the Bad Ideas about Writing teaching circle this Fall! We’ll meet on five Tuesdays and read selections from Ball and Loewe’s 2017 book Bad Ideas about Writing. If you have questions about the group or would like more information, email Kacey Ross.
Register for the Bad Ideas about Writing Teaching Circle sessions as follows:
- Session 1
- Session 2
- Session 3 by Friday, October 14
- Session 4 by Friday, October 28
- Session 5 by Friday, November 11
