Leticia French, M.A.
Lecturer of Writing,
College of Human Sciences and Humanities
Leticia French is a lecturer of composition and rhetoric in the Department of Communication and Studio Arts at UHCL, where she has been a faculty member since the fall of 2014.
She completed her B.A. and M.A. in English with an emphasis in composition and rhetoric
at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi. Her research interests lie in the areas
of course development, classroom management, and multi-modal rhetoric. She has collaborated
with colleagues to develop a business writing curriculum, and service learning courses,
as well as a course in maritime folklore. Throughout her career, a major research
interest has been the implementation of peer review as part of the writing process. Additionally,
in recent years, she has focused on creating multi-modal assignments for use in composition
and rhetoric undergraduate courses.
In addition to her research interests, her main focus is on teaching. Currently, she teaches undergraduate composition and rhetoric courses such as first-year writing and business writing, and cannot imagine a better, or more important way to spend her time and energy. Writing well is empowering; conveying that to students is vitally important to her.
