Writing II: Translingual and Transcultural Practices

“My course met face to face on Tuesdays and in hybrid form on Thursdays. Typically, Thursday “class” activities consisted of discussions board activities in which students looked at model texts, analyzing them by applying elements of the readings. I read through these responses and pulled out themes to begin face to face discussions on Tuesdays.”
— Prof. Brooke Schreiber

Great Works of Literature

“This assignment asks students to add a tale to The Thousand and One Nights on the course blog. Through an act of creative imitation that exploits the Nights’ additive structure, students participate in the text’s history of multi-author composition. They also prepare for a face-to-face discussion analyzing its intricate narrative form, and the relation of form to content.”
—Prof. Laura Kolb
