Given, Michael; Wagner, Jean A.; Belleau, Leisa; Smith, Martha
Writing Instructor, Sep 2007
Each of the four core composition units discussed in this paper presents its own set of challenges to both student and teacher. As writing teachers at mid-sized state universities, the authors offer four pedagogical approaches to exploring student identity through composition, literature, and rhetoric. One of the main goals is to allow new students to explore issues of personal and social identity formation; at the same time respect the mandate to provide basic communication tools and skills that will facilitate just such an exploration.
