Reflections on Writing: Pedagogy, Expectations, and Best Practices
________________________________

________________________________

With the renewed influence on writing competency, instructors at all levels of the educational system are revisiting the ways in which they conceive of good writing and good teaching practices, as well as the ways in which they present these ideas to their students. Further, the current focus on composition pedagogy emphasizes the reflective aspect of the process and serves to encourage instructors to conceive of writing not merely as a sequence of assignments or activities, but as a deliberate representation of the theoretical framework that informs those activities.

Issue #15: Pics and Bits

In the Humanities, we long ago redefined the concept of "text" to
include architecture, clothing, furniture, and any other material
object, artistic or otherwise, that can be a vessel for narrative. It is

possible, in fact, that the printed word as we know it is merely a blip
in the history of human communication.
