Join us for CCCC 2016! This year’s conference theme, “Writing Strategies for Action,” will provide a chance to think about the opportunities and challenges that we face as we engage with the work of writing instruction and literacy development.
Presenters will stimulate your thinking as they share recent research focusing on issues of concern to those in and out of the field: definitions of writing and good writing in different contexts; ways to engage and draw on the field’s disciplinary identity and knowledge; new methods for learning about writing, writers, or contexts for writing; policy questions that affect conditions for writing, writers, and the teaching of writing in different contexts; questions associated with the ways writing circulates in communities beyond the university; and more. Attendees are sure to leave with new ideas to bring to their own classes and institutions.
Attendees will have a chance to leave with more than just ideas, too. CCCC 2016 will feature Taking Action Workshops that will provide opportunities to develop specific strategies for action. These workshops are free to all attendees and take place during regular session time blocks. CCCC 2016 will also feature a number of opportunities to enable you to develop and practice with strategies for action, including special activity stations in the Action Hub.
I invite you to bring your ideas, energies, and concerns to CCCC 2016 so that together, we can engage in and think about how to use writing strategies for action.
See you in Houston!
