Audio interview assignment presentation

  1. 1. Audio Interview Assignment Ryan Trauman Columbia College Chicago April 18, 2014
  2. 2. “Composition classrooms can provide a context not only for talking about different literacies, but also for practicing different literacies, learning to create texts that combine a range of modalities as communicative resources: exploring their affordances, the special capabilities they offer to authors; identifying what audiences expect of texts that deploy different modalities and how they respond to such texts.” (Selfe, “The Movement of Air, the Breath of Meaning,” 643)
  3. 3. Examples • Andrew Interviewing Celeste • Jake Interviewing Marion • Gionna interviewing Mylah • Devonte interviewing Marcus • Eninna interviewing Sam
  4. 4. Rationale  respond to disciplinary calls for a more capacious definition of writing  cultivate students’ awareness, comfort, dexterity, and critical understanding of social online writing tools
  5. 5. Rationale  encourage students to understand audio recording, editing, and circulation as invention and revision strategies, rather than merely as the “audio version” of a written text.  foster a collaborative writing environment
