Jill Carroll, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that all instructors use a “teaching persona,” even those who unconsciously adopt what she calls a “default” persona. “If it [the default persona] works for you, consider yourself lucky,” she writes, “but if it doesn’t, the results can be messy.” This panel intends to address our teaching personae, and asks that participants consider the following questions (or any other questions that seem relevant to the issue at hand):

-Do you purposefully craft a persona for yourself, and if so, how have you gone about it?

-If at multiple universities, do you sample different approaches or personas?

-Who or what are your influences?

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 in co-requisite writing models where students are transitioning between both developmental and college-level writing courses in the same term.
