Writing Across the Curriculum Workshop #2: Why Are My Students Not Looking at the Model Papers I Give Them?: Integrating Exemplar Texts

Many instructors across departments provide model papers to students–either published work from their field or samples from former students–so that students might have a better idea of how to approach unfamiliar or challenging writing assignments. However, instructors often report frustration with students’ uses of these model texts, and it can be unclear whether and how students are reading them. Students can struggle to engage with model texts and translate what they are seeing there to their own writing.

In this workshop, we explore options and strategies for better integrating exemplar texts into your course. Whether for in-class use or homework, these concrete activities can be used by any faculty to guide students through analyzing the key rhetorical moves of exemplar texts and applying those moves to their own paper.

Lunch provided to first 25 registrants.
