This panel aims to re-think the way we design language courses that include students with special needs.

How can we redefine the concept of equal treatment within a course with an heterogenous student body? How do we tailor the course content, the assessments and the evaluation criteria to the needs of disabled students? How can we make the experience with disabled students pedagogically and emotionally meaningful to the entire class?

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.

NeMLA 2020 Boston Call for Papers: Creating Humanity through Prison Education Programs

The high cost of a college education and the persistent worries about both immediate and future employment opportunities have resulted in students and their families doubting the value of the humanities, and all too often, the value of a college degree. These pervasive doubts contrast to the many reports and surveys of employers who stress their preferences for hiring graduates with the very traits the study of humanities imbues: creative thinking, team work, empathy, communication skills, and curiosity. Despite the number of closures of humanities programs and the disappearance of colleges dedicated to the liberal arts, one population of potential students for humanities programs continues to grow: prison inmates.

English has always been subject to a number of competing agendas, with the result that its purpose within the school curriculum has often been open to contention. From its inception, English has been seen by governments and employers as the subject that teaches literacy and prepares students for the work force. By contrast, other advocates of English have argued its importance in cultivating character and citizenship in students. Yet others have argued the importance of the role that English plays in stimulating the growth of the imagination and enabling students to appreciate the value of literary language.

Throughout the past decades, gamification has become an increasing part of training experiences. To define the term quickly, gamification involves the application of game play mechanics to normally non-game-based activities to increase successful activity and performance. Gamification can involve the use of popular video games, adaptations of game shows like Jeopardy, simple chalkboard games like Hangman, or a variety of rhetorical approaches that introduce gaming components into another field.
