Profile: Prof. Gietzen

What would you like students to call you?
Professor Gietzen or Sheri. Yes! Either one. I’m not particular and want each student to call me what feels comfortable to them.

One of my favorite LC lectures...
I have a favorite type of lecture in the LC. After students read a text and are drafting a paragraph on it, we come together and students share their perspective on the reading in small groups. For example, we read about how society has altered views on identity and belonging; one reading is about young people getting tattoos. I love to hear students’ perspectives on where we have come from and what we think now on teenage tattoos. Everyone has something to say!

Our ideal LC student will... 
Someone who is curious about exploring reasons why society and they are the way they are. From reading, to writing, to discussing social identity, we will learn and grow together.

I love teaching in this LC because...
No matter where a student is academically when they begin our LC, we will work with you in writing and communication, explore with you, and discover the interconnections between us all.

In class, I'm most likely to...
Stop and ask students (or ask Steve) for input, and even adjust what we are discussing to be sure everyone feels they are understanding and on track with what we are learning.
