In teaching academic writing and ESL for the past twenty years, I have focused the content of my courses on culture, media, democracy, philosophy, and food. In other words, I like reading and thinking about the freedom to grow, cook, and eat foods in a variety of cultures and examining how our choices are affected by the ever present and overpowering media.
