Welcome to Davis Oldham’s home page. Here you’ll find links to the courses I’m teaching and some of the courses I have taught in the past, and other information as I find time to add it.


Writing Resources

A list of links with helpful advice on key writing issues.

Help with Writing

The Writing and Learning Studio (TWLS), in the Library, provides free instructional resources for students working on essays, research papers, reports, summaries, and other kinds of writing assignments for ANY course. Students can also get tips for improving their reading and study strategies. Free tutorial assistance is available on a walk-in basis. All students welcome. Check the website for hours.

Sex/Gender Discrimination

Shoreline Community College is committed to providing all students with a learning environment that is safe, supportive, and free from discrimination. Any form of sexual discrimination—sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence, or gender-based stalking—is a violation of Title IX (part of federal education law), and it must be reported. Title IX makes it clear that violence and harassment based on sex and gender is a Civil Rights offense subject to the same kinds of accountability and the same kinds of support applied to offenses against other protected categories such as race, national origin, etc. As your instructor, I have a mandatory reporting responsibility, and I am required by law to share with the College any information regarding sexual misconduct. For more information about Title IX, you can go to the SCC Title IX website. You can also contact Yvonne Terrell-Powell, Title IX Deputy Coordinator, at (206) 546-4559, or the Dean of Students, Kim Thompson, at (206) 546-4641.  If you would like to talk with someone in a confidential setting, please contact Counseling Services (206-546-4559).

Inclement Weather Policy

When weather is bad, I will try to get information about our class to you in three ways:

  1. On this website
  2. By email
  3. By the outgoing message on my office phone (206-546-4768)

If the college is open but I have to cancel class because I cannot get to campus, this is how I will try to let you know.

If homework is due on a day that class is cancelled, you may turn it in the next day we meet or you may email it. If you are on campus, feel free to slide it under my office door. Unless otherwise noted, if the homework was due in class I prefer to get a hard copy the next day we meet, but I will take email submissions.

Financial Aid Opportunities

From time to time I will post announcements of scholarships and other aid opportunities, as time permits. I will also maintain permanent links to our main financial aid sources at Shoreline.
