Roth, Elizabeth


My teaching career has spanned a variety of levels, ranging from Elementary Special Education through upper-division college English courses.


Ph.D. Curriculum and Instruction, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University (1998)
M.A. English, Hollins University (1967)
A.B. English, Notre Dame of Maryland University (1966)


My doctoral dissertation focused on the influence of John Dewey’s educational philosophy on the teaching of literature, especially as exemplified by Louise M. Rosenblatt’s Reader Response theory.
My primary research interest is English Education (i.e., teaching prospective teachers of English).
