Mr. Moses Glidden began teaching at Yavapai College in 1993. He taught American Literature, Composition I & II, Honors English I, Introduction to Journalism, and Remedial English. He also developed new courses: Cinematic Variations – the Life of Jesus, a Connections class – The Sense of Place, Film and Literature, and Living through Literature. He consistently received high evaluations from academic deans and students. In a Rough Writer poll, he was voted the students’ favorite instructor for several years.
He encouraged his students to reflect on their own lives through writing. He required his students in the Remedial English and Composition classes to volunteer 10-20 hours within the county and then to write about their experiences. Over the course of his career, the student volunteer time exceeded 10,000 hours. For two semesters his students created handmade books containing personal artwork and writings on their lives.
By far though, the most unusual class he taught for 18 semesters was Living Through Literature. The class was part of a ground-breaking national project to expose court-ordered students to college life and literature. Judge Robert Kuebler initiated the program locally in 1998 and Mr. Glidden was the instructor. Traditional YC students also signed up for the course. Each student would compare selected works of fiction to his/her personal stories, both on paper and in class. The class was very successful as evidenced by a Daily Courier article.
Mr. Glidden was also active in community service and on-campus committees and projects.
