  • Mapping Asian American Narratives: Conception and Collaboration in D.H. Classes

    Mapping Asian American Narratives: Conception and Collaboration in D.H. Classes

    Since the academic year is coming to an end, I want to take the time to reflect on the conception and collaboration that gets into the creation of classes in D.H. pedagogy. I think that in this case, it’s important to know how the sausage gets made to demystify the complexity surrounding D.H. classes and […]

    5 Habits for Intending Students to Succeed in 2022

But I didn’t understand how to organize the process to grow my academic productivity while my stress would decrease. It took me two years to make changes and succeed […]
