Episode 12: Video Didn't Kill the Composition Student
Composition classes are getting increasingly multimodal. You can't avoid it--and why would you want to? Visuals, sounds, videos--all are modes of composing that match up with the rhetorical principles we use when teaching alphabetic writing.
In this episode, co-edited with John Silvestro of Miami University, we focus on the practicalities of assigning video projects to your students. First, John interviews Jason Palmeri, director of First-Year Composition at Miami University and author of _Remixing Composition_. Then, John and Kyle chat about an all-text kind of video assignment (??!!). Finally, we'll hear from Crystal VanKooten of Oakland University for an overview of scholarship on video in the composition classroom.
