UPDATE Pupil 2014 has extended its submission deadline to March 15, 2014
Pupil: A Sourcebook for Teachers of Composition and Rhetoric is now accepting submissions for its 2014 journal!
Pupil is a blind-reviewed publication created by English grad students and TAs of California State University, Fullerton. Its purpose is to provide teachers of composition with fresh ideas and practical tools for use in the classroom. The pedagogical journal also aims to expand the collaborative aspect of teaching writing by inviting colleagues to share experiences and recommendations for new (and experienced) teachers of writing.
We invite you to submit essay prompts, classroom activities, writing exercises, and any other materials for use in the composition classroom. In addition to your materials, we ask that you include a short explanation of how the materials are to be used, how they've been helpful for you, and how they fit into your particular teaching philosophy. Please submit pieces in their entirety not to exceed 1000 words.
Suggestions for submissions (not an exclusive list):
Materials for teaching the writing process – assignments or exercises for use in brainstorming, organizing, drafting, revising, or editing.
Strategies for peer review
Grading rubrics or input on effective grading techniques
Methods for discussion or group work
Book reviews of classroom texts (with feedback related to your experience of the text)
Book reviews of pedagogical texts (illustrating how the text impacted your teaching)
Course outlines or syllabi
Submissions will be accepted through March 15, 2014. Please email your submissions to Pupilcfp@gmail.com with the subject line: "your last name, first submission 2014." Please include your full name, affiliation, and professional status (adjunct, TA, etc.) in the body.
Pupil 2014 will be digitally accessible on CSU Fullerton's English Department web page in June 2014. Print copies may also be available. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
