ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM

 

Although most of us have moved beyond simply teaching to the five-paragraph essay into richer, more diverse types of texts, we often still focus on relatively limited texts that focus on the academic classroom rather than the broader world in which students live. In this webinar, we’ll discus how teaching writing using scenarios or cases. Scenarios—composition’s version of a mathematical story problem—provide students with realistic rhetorical situations that provide a richer set of possibilities than traditional, academic assignments but still bounded enough to focus on specific pedagogical goals.
