Integrating Meaningful Writing Assignments
Presentation U! in the Hub, basement of W.T. Young Library
Friday, October 20, 2017 - 3:00pm
Presented by: Dr. Michael Sinowitz, Department of English, DePauw University
The purpose of this hour long workshop is to focus on imagining the various pieces of your class—its content, its formal writing assignments, and its informal writing—as working in relation to one another. We will consider the relative strengths and weaknesses of mastering a particular writing task, developing escalating tasks, as well as sequencing by way of shifting writing tasks. Although there are many ways to have one’s writing and one’s content interconnect and multiple ways to think about your assignments as a sequence, the way to give one’s course a sense of unity is about being intentional in overall course design. I will talk through some various ways of inter-relating these ideas, and I will also give participants a chance to brainstorm about these components for an upcoming class they will be teaching.
