Judith Mabary is an associate professor of musicology in the School of Music and has been at the University of Missouri since 2006. Her primary research focus encompasses the history of music by composers originating in the area known today as the Czech Republic. Dr. Mabary has been teaching Writing Intensive courses for MU for nine years, and in that time she has developed an interest in the value of peer review. She learned early on how much insight students bring to the classroom when allowed to do so. Her recommendation for teachers is this: Don’t underestimate your students. Indeed, they have much to learn, but they also have much to teach.
