Courses taught as a teaching assistant

- Lecture notes for POLSCI 599 (2018) [201 KB download, PDF]. These are the notes for the weekly lectures I gave in POLSCI 599, which is the first empirical methods class of the UMich political science department's PhD methods sequence. These sections were designed to complement lectures by Yuki Shiraito.
- How to write proofs in POLSCI 599 (2018) [103 KB download, PDF]. This document is designed for new political science PhD students who have never had to prove formal statements before.
- R and Stata introduction for POL314 (2015) [773 KB download, PDF]. Many of the students in this class had never written a line of code, but the final project involved some data analysis. Before this document, TAs had been meeting individually with students to show them how to do every step from downloading R all the way up to simple hypothesis testing in a Canadian Election Study dataset. I wrote this document so that we could ask students to do all of the simple steps on their own, before they met with a TA. So, this document covers only the very basics, but with plenty of pictures!
I compiled every teaching review that I have received as a Graduate Student Instructor into this document, because they are fairly difficult to read in their original format [40 KB download, PDF]. The accuracy and completeness of this document can be verified by downloading my official university-issued reviews below, which also contain my numerical ratings.
