How can teachers incorporate technology into the writing classroom in an effort to “keep writing relevant”?
Everyday in the English Building I hear people talking… about JOBS.
They talk about how they hope to prove their families (who have consistently given them a hard time for being an English major,) wrong by scoring a great job doing what they love. Really, they just want to prove that what they are good at: reading, writing, and talking about both; is still relevant in a world that keeps encouraging them to get a more “up-to-date” major.
This presents English educators with a challenge. How can they not only give their students the skills that have classically been taught in the field of English/Language Arts, but also give them ammunition to prove their relevance in today’s society?
