Since its beginnings, London has been regarded as the epitome of progress and advancement even in times of profound crisis and discord, exerting the charm of the vast setting that concentrates most, if not all, human experiences. From ancient Londinium to the 21st-century metropolis, the ever expanding urban settlement has emerged as a complex heterogeneous entity forging a particular code of conduct governed by imagination and originality, talent and vision that generate almost endless significations of the self.
The purpose of this supplemental text is to reinforce the concepts that are taught in developmental reading, developmental writing, and freshman orientation courses so that students may continue to address and improve those skills while mastering the material taught in their college-level writing courses. This text especially works well used in conjunction with a college writing textbook in co-requisite writing models where students are transitioning between both developmental and college-level writing courses in the same term.

“Enslaved Black folk couldn’t lift shackled feet,
so instead they shuffled
& invented the cumbia—
& you can’t tell me there aren’t many ways to survive,
to remember the dead,

Excerpt from Ariana Brown, “Cumbia,” published in the Acentos Review, 2019
This roundtable will provide a forum for participants to discuss and analyze their experiences and offer suggestions for teaching the multi-major professional writing course, more commonly referred to as simply “business writing” or “professional writing.” We especially welcome presentations that speak to and offer strategies targeting one of our three major concerns with the course: its decontextualized state, its reliance on non-neutral codes of professionalism, and the lack of pedagogical support often given to its instructors.
