This is a required course for anyone who plans to be a GSI in the Legal Studies Program or any other undergraduate class at UCB. GSIs must either have taken it before the semester they serve as a GSI, or take it concurrently while serving.

The course examines standard challenges and problems confronting anyone who teaches, and especially those who teach for the first time. Among them are: constructing a syllabus, constructing and grading tests, constructing and grading writing assignments, developing strategies for creating fair and inclusive classroom climates, developing lesson plans for discussion sections,facilitating participatory and active learning via discussion and other mechanisms, coordinating with co-GSIs, strategies for using writing in and out of the classroom, enhancing educational environments using electronic instructional resources, obtaining feedback from students, dealing with student dishonesty, and managing power and ethics in teaching. The units for this class cannot be counted toward JD, LLM, or JSD degree requirements.

Students are expected to attend class regularly and participate in several hands-on assignments both in and outside of class.

Attendance at the first two weeks of class sessions is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present during the first two weeks of class (without prior permission of the instructor) may be dropped without notice. The instructor can continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to risk being dropped without notice.
