Meet Joanna Wolfe for a conversation on rhetorical approaches to literary analysis - Friday, April 8, 10:00 a.m.
With Laura Wilder of the University of Albany, SUNY, Joanna Wolfe, director of the Global Communication Center at Carnegie-Mellon University undertook award-winning research that revealed tacit, unspoken strategies for writing effective essays about literary texts. Their new book, Digging into Literature: Strategies for Reading, Analysis, and Writing sets out a carefully scaffolded approach that demystifies those strategies for students. Talk with Joanna about their strategies--and your own--for teaching textual analysis. Check out their videos on LaunchPad Solo for Literature where students deploy the strategies as they “think aloud” about a literary text.
