ENGL 30700 The Teaching of Writing

Learning about the act of writing—not just how to write well, but also about the process we use to do so—is important whether you will become a writer, a teacher, an academic, or any variety of other profession. Study of the writing process helps us to become better writers, and also helps us develop effective teaching strategies for English composition. In this course, we will be reading and discussing a wide variety of research on the theory and practice of writing as it has evolved as a scholarly discipline in English in the past few decades. You will get a chance to see examples of effective teaching methods for helping students write more effectively, and you will be designing your own lessons and assignments to apply your understanding.
