Sustainability as a Design Principle for Composition: Situational Creativity as a Habit of Mind
Newcomb, Matthew
College Composition and Communication, v63 n4 p593-615 Jun 2012
Design is a rhetorical activity that requires creative thinking in response to difficult situations. That creative work ultimately builds new relationships and new contexts. Sustainable design can become an approach to composition that alters ways of thinking about writing situations, keeping ethical and contextual factors in focus, and encouraging students to develop habits of situational creativity.
