Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy 2021
Children’s literature as a field is not bounded by geography, and so critical discussions of the children’s literary tradition outside of a US context appear frequently in journals ranging from The New England Reading Association, to The Lion and the Unicorn, and The Reading Teacher. In fact, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly dedicated the Winter 2018 issue to “Migration, Refugees, and Diaspora in Children's Literature.” Despite the abundance of critical work, pedagogical resources such as Evelyn B. Freeman and Barbara A.

Recent poetry scholarship has begun to trace how some of the most normative concepts in poetry studies (meter, free verse, lyric, the speaker, voice) are enmeshed within broader systems of white supremacy and imperialism. Yet these concepts often go unchallenged in college classrooms. This seminar asks, how might this scholarship change the way we teach poetry and poetics--in any language, at any level, from Introduction to Poetry to advanced graduate seminars?

In our “post-truth” landscape, where “fake news” and “alternative facts” abound as the world struggles to make sense of an ever-changing global pandemic, it can be challenging for students, especially those transitioning from high school to college, to grasp the standards for composing and proving accurate and verifiable arguments. At the same time, teaching students to evaluate sources, construct fact-based arguments, as well as sharpen rhetorical and analytical skills is more important than ever before.
The SWCA Board is excited to announce that the 2021 Southeastern Writing Center Association conference will be held fully online. Join us Feb. 11-13, 2021, to discuss the transformations writing center professionals and the field undertake during times of crisis and trauma. The COVID-19 pandemic, racial injustice, social unrest, natural disasters, and significant changes in the structure and leadership of higher education have greatly accelerated the pace of these changes and prompted all of us in the writing center field to reconsider many aspects of our approaches to writing center work and everyday operations. Writing center professionals are called not just to react, but to proactively transform their identities, missions, and services.

Throughout the past decades, gamification has become an increasing part of training experiences. To define the term quickly, gamification involves the application of gameplay mechanics to normally non-game-based activities to increase successful activity and performance.

Teaching Women’s Filmmaking
Interaction occurs when interlocutors exchange messages through spoken and written language (Nik, 2010; Ziglari, 2008). It has been conceptually and operationally categorized from different frameworks: as conversational and instructional exchanges, as computer-mediated communication, and through social connections. Following sociocultural theory (SCT), interaction is the key to success in language learning, which is viewed as a process of social interaction (Vygotsky, 1978).
