Novices Encounter a Novice Literature: Introducing Digital Literature in a First-Year College Writing Class
Daemmrich, Ingrid G.
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v34 n4 p420-433 May 2007
Introducing Web-based literary hypertexts in an introductory writing course motivates students to ponder both the changing techniques of writing and reading and their own attitudes toward these two interrelated activities in a wholly new way. Evaluating a novice literature launches novice readers and writers on a journey to becoming "experts" at facing with confidence the many challenges that college and life will bring, including a fundamentally new approach to reading and writing.
