Some of Caleb's evaluation comments, both as a TA and an Instructor
Caleb strongly believes that being a great professor requires being an effective educator. Twice recognized for excellence in teaching, Caleb is regarded as one of the best TAs in his department, with ESCI scores consistently ranked well above departmental and university norms. Students tend to emphasize Caleb's enthusiasm for the material, his ability to demystify complicated ideas, the open, positive learning atmosphere he cultivates, and his willingness to engage with students in office hours. Frequently, students describe Caleb's courses as the best of their college career. Caleb also acts as Lead TA for the department (responsible for training new TAs and handling all TA-related issues) and anticipates being awarded the Certificate in College and University Teaching upon graduation.
Caleb has taught "Introduction to Political Theory," "Classical Political Theory," and "Contemporary Political Theory" as an instructor of record, as well as supervised on independent study on "Technology, Politics, and Meaning in the 21st Century." He's also slated to teach "Democratic Theory and It's Critiques" in the spring of 2018. In the future, Caleb would love to offer courses on political realism, early modern social contract theory, Roman political thought, post-Hegelian German political thought, and the work of Stanley Cavell.
Caleb is also well-prepared to teach courses in American Politics, especially those on Political Behavior and Political Communications.
