Chapter 6 - New Directions for University Writing Instruction

Slice ePub December 14, 2013
<p>As I begin this final chapter, I wish first to honor the acts of courage and integrity of all of Tim’s teachers to teach him well, as well as Tim’s own dedication to learning and to making a meaningful contribution to society. I am privileged that these individuals have allowed me to get to know them and to try, through this research, to provide suggestions for how we all might teach writing better. And to all who read this for the sake of this same enterprise of teaching well and learning well, I say, we are in this inquiry together. Knowing readers will make their own connections and draw their own conclusions from this work, I offer final thoughts only as catalyst for furthering the inquiry we are in together.</p><p>It seems to me that three things need to be noted at the end of this case study.</p><p><i>First: a developmental model for understanding writers’ growth, for designing curriculum and assessment measures and for training teachers (whether writing teachers or teachers in other disciplines) and tutors needs to encompass the five knowledge and skill domains used here to frame the analysis of a writer’s growth.</i> To focus on one or several aspects of writing expertise to the exclusion of the others represents less than a full view of the developmental process for gaining writing expertise. This theoretical lens can be useful not only in designing curriculum and understanding what the causes are for individual students’ writing problems, but also in designing tools for assessing writing development.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/282264-college-writing-and-beyond-a-new-framework-for-university-writing-instruction">See more</a>

Chapter 1: The Government-Corporate Complex: What It Knows about You

Slice ePub May 14, 2014
<p> <strong>Reason to be afraid #1:</strong> </p><p>Average citizens are subject to ever-expanding surveillance and data collection by the government-corporate complex.</p><p>Halfway across the ornate sitting room, Julian Assange stands with his back to the door, drinking a bottle of beer. It is early on a summer evening, June 22, 2013, and the Embassy of Ecuador in London is hosting a small party to acknowledge the one-year anniversary of his arrival in need of asylum. While Assange stands chatting calmly about the future of his anti-secrecy enterprise, Wikileaks, few people in the room know that he is worried. Sarah Harrison, his principal researcher and confidant, is only hours away from slipping out of Hong Kong with Edward Snowden, who, at that moment, is fast becoming the most hunted man in the world.</p><p>Close friends and supporters of Assange mill around the room, helping themselves to the buffet and arguing about software and the state of the world—in that order. Assange himself, with his longish white hair and black jeans, looks slightly out of place in the scene, bordered as it is by stiff-legged, gilt-painted settees. After a year, however, he’s completely at home here, laughing and joking with the security guys, lawyers, and hacker guests, talking thoughtfully about the escalating struggle for control of electronic information.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/614956-the-rise-of-the-american-corporate-security-state">See more</a>
