The following questions were prepared in order to ask the guest speaker in-class, but since this has been post-poned, I have posted them in order for the class to read and hopefully comment on.
1. What made you decide to be an educator at the university level compared to the elementary setting?
2. While being the chairman of the English department, has it increased your interaction with students or separated you? Specifically, are there any negative aspects of being a chairman?
3. Since not a considerable amount of students decide to become English majors, are you or the department trying to solicit, in any way, in order to attract more students? Would you wish that more education students become English majors since it is such an extreme component of the teaching world?
