Teaching Twitter as Composition

Hi All,

Unfortunately, due to a prior engagement I won’t be able to make it to next class. In the meantime, here is an article about changing composition methods in class to accommodate new modalities of writing. It’s a topic I’m personally interested in, and will be presenting on at NeMLA. I’m not sure how I feel about this piece though, it seems like he is simply taking short writing exercises and repackaging them as “new media.” Composition teachers have been doing sentence level exercises like these for a long time. Anyway, it’s interesting and brief at any rate.

Cheers,

 

Joost
