This presentation uses a 2011 Florida law as a context for examining course modality as a contact zone. The law requires all high-school students to take at least one online course before graduation. The politically minded law ignores complex issues of access and ethics that become reified in our FYC courses. I will examine the “cultural and ideological characteristics” of this technological requirement to identify how writing instruction in various modalities can accommodate (or defend against) student expectations for online learning.
