David Bartholomae, in his introductory essay to his recent collection,

those of us working with basic writers to say of our colleagues, ‘If they
can read Gertrude Stein and value what she does, why can’t they read the
work of basic writersâ€"why can’t they give it the same time and attention,
why can’t they value the work’.” It is still a very good, and

attention to Stein in this recent essay, points to some still to be
explored implications of the student-centered, assignment driven, labor-

The North Carolina Symposium on Teaching Writing seeks to facilitate the
growth of a regional community of scholars in rhetoric and the teaching of
writing across North Carolina and surrounding areas. We also invite others
interested in discussing the building of community and the teaching of
writing to participate in the symposium. To accomplish this, the symposium
organizers have chosen the theme of “Composing Community” for the inaugural
meeting in 2008. We welcome proposals for panels and papers on a variety of
topics; proposals which embrace the conference's theme of “community” will
be given special consideration.

Although most of us would be loathe to let students follow Allen Ginsberg's
Zen-based exhortation, "First thought, best thought!" and write only first
drafts, many Zen-based techniques have, nevertheless, crept into writing
and public speaking classrooms with great success. This panel will explore
how panelists and participants have used non-religious meditative or yogic
techniques for pedagogical purposes. All approaches are
welcome--theoretical, pedagogical, or creative. Dissent especially encouraged!
