Special projects

Jeanne frequently collaborates with other teachers at Tompkins Cortland, and team teaches courses that link academic writing with sociology, cross-disciplinary research seminars, a course on HBO’s The Wire, Race and Ethnicity, and Creative Nonfiction. She is currently involved in writing to learn practices, using a good deal of informal writing in the classroom to help students develop a deep understanding of difficult concepts and ideas.
