(Teaching) Essayist Literacy in the Multimedia World
Khadka, Santosh
Composition Forum, v32 Fall 2015
This article presents an argument for the "re-turn" of essayist literacy in multimedia and multiliteracy contexts. For its democratic, pedagogical, and intellectual potential, essayist literacy is too important to be removed from composition curriculum, but it needs to be re-imagined within a diversity of essay traditions, including the turn toward multimedia writing undertaken in diverse writing classrooms. This article analyzes the findings from a study of one such "re-imagined" essayist literacy unit/assignment in a composition course designed to focus on multiliteracies at a research university in the Northeast United States.
