Theorized Writing Project

Content to be added. Under construction!

This assignment requires me to concoct my own writing project or writing assignment based on the heuristics and threshold concepts I am learning both in class and outside of it. The project must include an element of scaffolding or sequencing, a multimodal sample response, and the theory and justification behind the components involved. I want to create an assignment which will engage students and enrich their experience in first-year composition. I took a non-traditional course path to satisfy my general education requirements, so I never took first-year composition myself. Therefore, it is doubly important for me to research my projected assignment carefully and to consider my phrasing carefully. I want the project to be engaging and possibly challenging, but not confounding. Even if I can’t make students love writing as much as I do, I want to encourage them to become the best possible writerly versions of themselves.
