English 540: Teaching Stretch and Studio Composition Practicum
Davila, Bethany; Elder, Cristyn L.
Composition Studies, v45 n2 p180-186 Fall 2017
In the course overview, the authors state that this course prepares those who enroll to teach Stretch and Studio Composition at the University of New Mexico by introducing relevant theory and pedagogy in the areas of basic writing, multilingual writing, metacognition, and reading instruction. While the English 537: Teaching Composition Practicum aims to provide a broad understanding of teaching composition using a genre approach, this course asks those who enroll to consider how to tailor their pedagogy for students who may require additional layers of support. The authors encourage student teachers to above all else, view their students' existing skills and literacies as resources that can be built upon in the class. Those who enroll will also be supported in developing a course that will promote their students' progress toward student learning outcomes.
