Digital Revision of Alphabetic Text (Allison Carey)
This assignment is one of the culminating projects in an English ed class (specifically ENG 402: Methods of Teaching Composition). Over the course of the semester, students have composed (traditional, alphabetic, pen & paper/computer) in 3 genres: a creative nonfiction “short,” a literacy narrative, and a profile (typically of a person but can be about a building/space). After doing “deep revision” on all 3 of these texts, students select 1 and transform it into a digital text. The form of the final digital text is up to them, although most choose to do a video essay of some sort.
