The Paideia: An Advanced Composition Model
"This article describes an advanced writing project that brings conventional
and electronic text and performance together in a way that approaches
what Richard Lanham has labeled "The Rhetorical Paideia." It acknowledges the significance of this shift and the importance of electronic text as an advanced form of writing, and I believe, offers a compelling model of one approach to advanced composition."
Teaching Composition Online: No Longer the Second-Best Choice
"Having taught freshmen composition both in the classroom and online,
I have noticed a unique learning advantage for students who participate
online. Students who take an online composition course learn to communicate
through writing because it is their only medium for communication. The
practice they receive through writing to communicate with their instructor
and peers can be as influential to their writing skills as major essay
assignments. Using current online technologies in conjunction with research
in distance education has given me a new direction for not only my online
courses, but my face-to-face composition classes as well. "
