Writing Center Heroes
Professor Betsy Levy Paluck is an assistant professor of psychology known for her large-scale studies of conflict resolution in Africa and bullying in American middle schools. She teaches PSY400: Social Psychology and Social Change and begins her class by reading from George Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language,” an exhortation for academic writing to be accessible and clear. She assigns weekly reading responses and works with students closely on making motivated arguments. For her close attention to writing and passion for writing pedagogy, we’re proud to honor Professor Levy Paluck as a Writing Center Hero.
