Teaching to the Text Message - NYTimes.com - 9 views

  • So a few years ago, I started slipping my classes short writing assignments alongside the required papers. Once, I asked them, “Come up with two lines of copy to sell something you’re wearing now on eBay.” The mix of commerce and fashion stirred interest, and despite having 30 students in each class, I could give everyone serious individual attention. For another project, I asked them to describe the essence of the chalkboard in one or two sentences. One student wrote, “A chalkboard is a lot like memory: often jumbled, unorganized and sloppy. Even after it’s erased, there are traces of everything that’s been written on it.”
  • My ideal composition class would include assignments like “Write coherent and original comments for five YouTube videos, quickly telling us why surprised kittens or unconventional wedding dances resonate with millions,” and “Write Amazon reviews, including a bit of summary, insight and analysis, for three canonical works we read this semester (points off for gratuitous modern argot and emoticons).”

      these comments are more useful than the article--we do a "welcome" every morning from the night's reading. This might freshen up the "welcome" and remind them of its relevance to their lives. Thanks.
  • And short isn’t necessarily a shortcut. When you have only a sentence or two, there’s nowhere to hide.

  • Rewarding concision first will encourage students to be economical and innovative with language.
