Here are the archives from our very productive chat on first-week activities, readings, and writing assignments.
Next week, we will be discussing how to deal with difficult topics in the classroom. With the political season in full swing, as well as the increasingly partisan nature of our society, how do we meaningfully and productively deal with issues such as race, gender, sexuality, religion, ageism, ableism, etc in our classroom? How do we address these concerns when they show up in our students' writing? How can we encourage and foster dialogue?
Looking forward to it. See you next Wednesday.
