Teaching Assistant for Dr. Charles Plott
- Designed a recitation lecture each week. I would spend some time reviewing the correct answers to the problem sets, then I would go over lecture topics from the last week that students seemed to struggle with. Finally, I would open the class up to more discussions and questions.
- Wrote the first draft of the midterm and final exams. The questions in these drafts typically made it into the final drafts of the exams.
- Graded weekly problem sets, midterm, final, and weekly short essays for approximately 40 students.
- Held weekly office hours.
