Putting on a Good Show: Professor as Performer

Jill Carroll, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that all instructors use a “teaching persona,” even those who unconsciously adopt what she calls a “default” persona. “If it [the default persona] works for you, consider yourself lucky,” she writes, “but if it doesn’t, the results can be messy.” This panel intends to address our teaching personae, and asks that participants consider the following questions (or any other questions that seem relevant to the issue at hand):

-Do you purposefully craft a persona for yourself, and if so, how have you gone about it?

-If at multiple universities, do you sample different approaches or personas?

-Who or what are your influences?

PAMLA 2018 Special Session

Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. All the world is a ‘stage’ for military personnel and their families. Their stories and experiences as they ‘act’ in foreign locations is a rich part of human culture that veterans bring with them when they return to civilian life. This special session invites papers that explore the many facets of the military experience including literature, theatre, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans.

Seeking contributions from college writing instructors for The Writer Works Book (working title), a supplemental workbook that assists students in freshman writing courses, especially in co-requisite models

The purpose of this supplemental text is to reinforce the concepts that are taught in developmental reading, developmental writing, and freshman orientation courses so that students may continue to address and improve those skills while mastering the material taught in their college-level writing courses.  This text especially works well in co-requisite writing models where students are transitioning between both developmental and college-level writing courses in the same term.
