With this provocative series of discussions, the Center for Writing's Teaching with Writing program offers University of Minnesota faculty members, TAs, and other instructors a venue for discussing controversial issues related to teaching with writing. Here we focus on teasing out tangled and difficult teaching issues rather than providing strategies and solutions. To help frame discussions, we will send registrants one or two short articles in advance.
Friday, October 2: what counts as "writing"?
Friday, November 6: i write, therefore i learn?
Friday, December 4: the erosion of writing skills
Discussions are from 9-10:30am in Nolte 125.
