Welcome to Writing Theory & Practice. This website is the official class site for Dr. Mia Zamora’s graduate course ENG 5020. The class is designed to introduce students to the major principles and issues related to teaching writing. By the course’s end students should have a repertoire of theories, practices, and resources they can use to help others learn to write, as they continue to explore Writing Studies as teachers, scholars, and writers in the digital age.
- Students will explain the major theories of composing and teaching writing
- Students will apply, examine, and practice the different parts of the writing process
- Students will address important issues related to writing instruction
In Fall 2018, our ENG 5020 Writing Theory and Practice course will also be participating and collaborating with #UnboundEq “Making Borders Meaningless”. #UnboundEq is a global community and conversation focusing on intercultural learning and digital literacies on the open web – it is also known as an open online “collaboratory”. All Kean University students in ENG 5020 will also be active participants in the global #Unboundeq project.
Both the #Unboundeq project and the ENG 5020 course website will serve as a shared e-locale and interface for our on-going work and resources as we connect with other scholars and co-learners outside our formal classroom setting.
