Student instructor Kathy Cowley describes why and how she is having her students use blogging in her writing class at Brigham Young University. Is blogging a legitimate kind of writing instruction? What are its advantages and limits? Listen to the episode here (or subscribe to the podcast here).
In the podcast I quote from a paper Kathy wrote in which she quoted Rosa A. Eberly, "From Writers, Audiences, and Communities to Publics: Writing Classrooms as Protopublic Spaces." Rhetoric Review 18 (1999): 165-78. In our discussion Kathy also refers to Geoffrey Sirc's "Box-Logic." Writing New Media: Theory and Applications for Expanding the Teaching of Composition. Logan: Utah State University Press, 2004. 43-66.
