One of the things I have noticed as a composition instructor is that many students struggle to think of themselves as writers. Even though most students engage with some sort of writing every day—text messages, Facebook posts, emails, web messaging, Instagram captions, etc.—many students still struggle to navigate classroom writing assignments without undue stress and worry. This interactive workshop will provide instructors with activities to engage students’ every day encounters with writing and relate these encounters to class learning outcomes and concepts, such as rhetorical situation, analysis, and reflection. Acknowledging the writing that students do outside of class in the classroom helps them to find greater relevance in classroom experiences and encourages them to mingle their student and personal identities. In other words, it helps students to think of themselves as writers and composers in different spaces and roles.
