One of the main goals of this seminar is to help you compose a set of informed and polished materials for your Fall 2016 R&C course. I’ll ask you to start work on your course in a bird by bird fashion, drafting one short document each evening this week. These will include:

  • A course overview or plan,
  • One or two key writing projects you will assign to students,
  • A template for a WordPress course site.

In addition, I’ll ask you to post three reflections on your teaching to this site at various points during the fall. I also encourage you to check in on the site from time to time and to comment on the posts of your colleagues. My hope is that these posts and comments will allow us to continue the conversation we start in this seminar. They will also provide some starting points for our talk together when we meet in December for our recap session.

Please click on the links above for more details about each of these tasks. I’ll generally ask you to bring five print copies of your writing to each of our meetings. But I will also set up some shared folders on Google Drive where you can post documents directly to me. Finally, I need to ask you to set up a free account on WordPress.com, if you don’t already have one.
