Compile all supporting materials into one single document (WORD, Excel, or PDF) that is no larger than 9MB. Upload that file to the Required Documents field, Portfolio. Please limit your portfolio to 20 pages plus course evaluations:
    • written reports of classroom observations and/or recent teaching evaluations.
    • syllabi representing the range of composition courses you are interested in teaching.
