Query:   Dear Colleagues:

I am studying introductory courses to linguistics (e.g., “Introduction to Linguistics” or “Introduction to Language”). I am interested in courses from universities across Carnegie classifications, including Research Extensive, Research Intensive, and Masters I universities.

Besides studying the syllabi and textbooks that instructors use, I would like to study instructors’ philosophies for teaching introductory linguistics courses.

Many of us write statements of our teaching philosophy for job applications, awards, and tenure review. I am hoping that you will be willing to share your teaching philosophy for teaching linguistics, especially introduction to linguistics courses, with me.

If you would be willing to send your teaching philosophy statement to me, you can send it to me by email at Or, you can send it by snail mail to Dr. Jo Mackiewicz, Composition Department and Linguistics Program, University of Minnesota Duluth, Duluth, Minnesota, 55812, USA.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email at

Thank you so much for considering my request,
