Want to Present at CBW 2019?

“Inside Our Classrooms: Basic Writing Today” will highlight the work of scholars of color

The CBW has a long-standing commitment to racial justice and inclusivity. As such, we are designating a portion of our program to highlighting the work of scholars of color, with particular emphasis on newer scholars in a poster session focused on classroom pedagogy.

Interested in presenting? Please send a 100-200 word proposal to lclark@lagcc.cuny.edu. Please use the subject line “Inside Our Classrooms” CBW 2019 Proposal.

  1. In your proposal, please describe your work in Basic Writing with a special emphasis on your classroom pedagogy. How would you highlight and share this work in a poster session? Proposals need not present a program-wide perspective (although that is welcome). We are interested in what you’re doing in your classrooms today!
  2. Let us know if this would be your first presentation at CBW/CCCC.
  3. Please make sure to include contact information and institutional affiliation.

Accepted proposals will be featured in a poster session at CBW 2019 on Wednesday, 13 March 2019 during our preconference workshop at CCCC 2019.

Please feel free to touch base with questions before sending in your proposal!

Deadline: 2/15/19

Cross-blogging

Hi CBW-ers,

I started keeping a blog this semester about teaching developmental writing at the College of DuPage. It’s had an uneven start, but the entry I wrote today, Test Results Day, is one that many of you could relate to. It’s very in the moment. I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to comment. Hope you are having a peaceful end to your spring semester.
