Department of English

I have been a First Year Writing Instructor with Seton Hall's English Department for over 17 years. During much of that time I have been involved with Seton Hall's Critical Thinking Core Proficiency, having worked on both the development of the proficiency from its inception to the present efforts to expand the infusion of courses throughout the university curriculum. I am particularly interested in the relationship of reading and writing to enhance critical thinking, and in the effect of the study of literature on the development of complex thinking ability.
