Writing Theory - course descriptions

ENGL 6010: English Instruction in Composition

This course travels through three moments. We begin with an inquiry into the theoretical underpinnings of the teaching of writing, extending those theories to consider our own classroom practices. We then turn to a consideration of key pedagogical strategies, working collaboratively to examine and model best teaching practices. Our third turn is to current scholarship in the field, where students take up a current critical debate, research it, and enter into it. The class culminates in the production of a statement of teaching philosophy, a revised syllabus, and a paper which argues for how the syllabus enacts the philosophy.
