You will learn the theories behind several issues and pedagogies in composition studies: the writing process, invention, revision, collaborative learning, responding to student writing, evaluating student writing, basic writing, audience, style, error analysis, the connection between writing and reading, writing across the curriculum, service learning, and computer-assisted instruction. The ultimate goal of the course is to give you tools for becoming creative and competent writing teachers. A special component on computer-assisted writing gives this course a technological emphasis.
