Wall, K. Blaine – CEA Forum, 2021
Given the political and social fragmentation and incivility that currently exists in America, this paper examines existing scholarship on diversifying the American literary canon in order to increase cultural literacy and to encourage reflective and critical conversations about modern-day issues of social justice.

Scharnhorst, Rhiannon – CEA Forum, 2021
In this age of PDFs and free e-texts, literature gets separated from its initial context, perhaps even devoid of context all together. Taking Roald Dahl's most anthologized short story "Lamb to the Slaughter" as its object of study, this article proposes a pedagogy that embraces the return of paratextual material to the literature…

Leporati, Matthew – CEA Forum, 2021
This article explores how college instructors can use William Blake's unique pairing of image and text -- what W.J.T. Mitchell calls "composite art" -- to encourage students to think and write about the dynamic interplay of image and text in modern communications. Opening with an anecdote of teaching Songs of Innocence and of Experience…

I have been teaching English composition for almost 9 years at a 2-year branch campus near the Navajo reservation in New Mexico.

Davidson, Guy – CEA Forum, 2021
Using as a case study the experience of teaching Jane DeLynn's "Leash" (2002), a "pornosophical" novel about a sadomasochistic lesbian relationship, I argue in this essay for the pedagogical value of shock. I argue that shocking works of pornography can unsettle not only students' comfortable understandings of sexuality, but…

Parrott, Jill; Green, Lucas; Kaiser, Jordan; Smothers, Cody; Rodgers, Sam – CEA Forum, 2019
A central objective of many writing courses is to prepare students to effectively communicate in their personal, professional, and public lives, but writing instruction can seem disconnected from contemporary societal practices that constitute civil public discourse. This project aims to explore the connections between instructors' perceptions and…

Hrebik, John Ryan – CEA Forum, 2019
In this article, the author discusses composition studies by examining how incorporating "songwriting" into a first-year writing course enables students to begin expressing their own ideas/perspectives, while also developing the ability to create the concise, detailed texts associated with academic writing.

Wiedenfield, Logan – CEA Forum, 2019
The kind of writing the author is describing in the article is fostered by academic discourse, which, as Peter Elbow has persuasively argued, "tries to peel away from messages the evidence of how those messages are situated as the center of personal, political, or cultural interest." He goes on, "the conventions [of academic…

Winston, Jessica – CEA Forum, 2019
As a relatively common tool and object of analysis in teaching Shakespeare and dramatic literature in general, live performance deserves further attention within the pedagogical literature. This is even more true now, since the development of digitally relayed live broadcasts has widened access to theatre, creating greater possibilities for…

Raymond, Rich – CEA Forum, 2019
To challenge resistance to required literature courses, instructors quiz students regularly on the readings; they also require examinations that ask students to define key terms, to answer background questions focused on authors and dates, to identify key passages by author/title/speaker, and to explain the thematic significance of each quotation.…

Connors-Manke, Beth – CEA Forum, 2019
In face-to-face conversation, it's easy to react with shock and moralism to the incivility enabled by social media, easy to lament that we live in an era when communication has gone wrong. The digital era, however has also reinvigorated voice--both written and spoken--in other, less toxic, ways. We've seen a resurgence in oral composition (think:…

Bacabac, Florence Elizabeth – CEA Forum, 2019
Since writing in the disciplines (WID) is focused on learning how to write formal documents of a professional register, it is important to note that each field or discipline has its own style, structure, and format when it comes to writing, and most composition courses seldom facilitate the transfer of these specialized skills in the classroom.…

Witzleben, Megan – CEA Forum, 2019
During Charles Dickens's lifetime, education publications such as "The Union Sixth Reader" already shared methods for teaching his works. "The Union Sixth Reader" gives evidence to educational concerns surrounding the best uses of language, as though Dickens's turns of phrase could empower students. Today, educators may not…
