Daniel Ross

I am currently a Lecturer of Linguistics at the University of California, Riverside (recurring: 2016, 2019-), where I have taught LING 121 Syntax, LING 131 Morphology, LING 151 Semantics and LING 162 (cross-listed as PSYC 128) Language and the Brain. I have taught in-person, but also online from 2020-2021.

At California State University Fullerton in Spring 2021, I taught SPAN 530, Graduate Seminar: Historical Linguistics.

As a graduate student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, I was the primary instructor for LING 210 ‘Language History’, from Fall 2013 to Spring 2015. I was also a teaching assistant for LING 301 Syntax (Spring 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and LING 307 Semantics (Fall 2012, Fall 2013). In addition to my experience in the classroom, I completed a Graduate Teacher Certificate through the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning, UIUC, April 2015, and I was an official tutor for the EPI (English Proficiency Interview, a test for international TAs) via CITL (2010-2015).

I have also organized a weekly Beginners Research Group several years at UCR and UIUC to discuss research projects and weekly themes such as research methodology or how to submit to and present at a conference. Additionally, I worked with and mentored several undergraduate students as research assistants at UIUC for independent study credit.

Beyond academia, I spent three months during the summer of 2011 as a volunteer teaching English in a public elementary school in Machala, El Oro, Ecuador.
