Recognition by fourth-year English students of teaching excellence and innovation on the part of a professor within the Department of English Language & Literature
Any fourth-year English student may nominate an instructor with a written response to the nomination form. The nomination form includes three sections that correspond to the nomination criteria, with short answer questions falling within the following categories: consistent and meaningful support to students; innovative and engaging classroom teaching; and commitment to fostering community within and beyond the classroom. Responses to each section may not exceed two hundred words.
The aforementioned statements will be read by the Nomination Committee, composed of fourth-year students and a Faculty Advisor. Members of the Nomination Committee may not submit or receive nominations.
The recipient of the Fourth Years’ Choice Award will be announced at the English Fourth-Year Banquet, and will have his/her name added to the plaque displayed in the fourth floor lounge in Watson Hall.
