About Karl Hagen

Karl Hagen

I am a recovering medievalist. Until 2005, I taught at a Catholic college in Los Angeles, but I've now left academia. As part of my former teaching duties, I was responsible for teaching introductory linguistics to future teachers, and that experience made me very interested in what is taught under the rubric of "grammar" in K-12 classrooms. I also spend a lot of time thinking about the intersection between authentic academic skills and standardized testing.
