I have taught undergraduate courses in first year composition (with a focus on multimodality), cultural rhetorics, indigenous rhetorics, Chicana/x rhetorics, indigenous cartography, and rhetoric and civic engagement. I have also taught graduate courses in rhetorical tradition, community literacy, and decolonial theories. I have also mentored graduate students as they completed their theses and dissertations and applied to national conferences. Additionally, I have taught in non-academic community settings, such as the Hope Community Center (HCC) in Orlando FL, with predominantly multilingual or 2nd language learners. Below is a list of the most recent courses I have taught. Click here for a more exhaustive list.
I have included some sample syllabi. If you are interested in seeing syllabi for other courses, feel free to contact me at gabrielaraquelrios [at] gmail [dot] com.
- ENC 6335 Rhetorical Traditions [ Syllabus ]
- I want to thank Qwo-Li Driskill, Malea Powell, and Stacey Pigg for their generosity in sharing materials and assignments I used in this course. In particular, Malea’s “rhetorical making” project has been taken up by many of us who are influenced by her work as a way to account for rhetorical traditions that may not be linked to alphabetic text. Additionally, my organization of course readings stems from her and Qwo-Li’s application of Mignolo’s decolonial theory, which disrupts linear histories of rhetoric.
