When faculty are teaching large lecture courses with recitations, they are required to teach two lectures, supervise the TA (including the TA’s teaching and grading)*, and grade a number of papers/exams equivalent to one of the course’s recitations. GSLL faculty may choose to teach a recitation as a means of training the TAs, but this will not be compensated with any monetary reward* or extra points on peer evaluations. (**The exception follows)

* Added in January 2012:  Faculty supervising TAs should conduct at least one classroom visitation with their TA(s) and write up a short classroom visitation report. Faculty should discuss the evaluation with the TA, and give a copy of the classroom evaluation to the TA, and a copy to Karen (for the department files).
