Students and faculty at Elon University will host a one-hour Twitter chat (use #eloneng219 to participate) each Wednesday in October, beginning Oct. 11, using questions developed by the NCTE Writes team to facilitate a multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary, and multi-generational (pre-service teachers to tenured faculty) conversation about writing.
The prompts for each week are as follows:
Wed., Oct. 11: One of the principles identified in the NCTE statement “Professional Knowledge for the Teaching of Writing” is that “writing is a process.” What does this process look like in your classroom?
Wed., Oct. 18: The NCTE statement “NCTE Beliefs about Students’ Right to Write” says that “teachers should foster in students an understanding and appreciation of the responsibilities inherent in writing.” What does this look like in your classroom?
Wed., Oct. 25: The Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing speaks to the importance of fostering our students’ “abilities to compose in multiple environments from using traditional pen and paper to electronic technologies.” What does this look like in your classroom?
