Hello and Welcome
My name is Eric Barnhart and this site you have stumbled upon is my online Teaching Portfolio. I am currently an Adjunct Lecturer at a variety of campuses within the San Fernando Valley, an occasional writer, and recreational photographer.
My approach to teaching is a continual process that builds on the accumulation of experience from both sides of the classroom: both as student and teacher. It was as a student that I uncovered my passion for the written word, for what worlds a fine-tuned sentence, a passing thought, is capable of bringing into life. These experiences, as a Student, a Writer, a Supplemental Instructor, and Teaching Associate, and the opportunities they have opened for me are what I hope to provide for my students.
This website serves as my Teaching Portfolio and includes copies of syllabi and assignments that I have constructed in order to help facilitate my student's acquisition of college writing and thinking skills. I have also included a brief rationale that helps illustrate some of my teaching philosophies.
Thank you for visiting. If you have any questions, comments, or responses, please feel free to contact me. I'm always looking to continue the conversation.
