a woman of words
Why am I doing this? The Fall 2014 Composition Syllabus I created was just fine. I really don’t have enough time to do this….. AND YET.
I just can’t stop myself. Last Fall, I introduced a lot more hands-on writing activities/projects for my students to complete than I have in previous manifestations of my Composition courses. Students enjoyed the projects, but we often ran out of time for students to meaningfully present and share their work with the class.
So, I am grabbing a large portion of my out-of-class projects and inserting them into the activities will we do (and will count toward the students’ attendance points) during class time.
I don’t want all of the assessed learning artifacts to consist of traditional essays (so I am building in more dynamic writing projects outside of class), but I want more of the learning artifacts that will serve as symbols and reminders of what the students have learned during the class to also consist of dynamic activities.
