Call For Papers

SAMLA 2022 CONFERENCE - TEACHING WRITING IN COLLEGE - Conference held in Jacksonville FL 11-11-2022 - 11-13-2022

Submissions are welcome from full-time, part-time, grad students, junior college faculty.

The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to the conference theme of “Change.” Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of culture, identity, and expression. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom. If students are to be successful in college, at work and in their personal lives, they must learn to write. This requires students to receive adequate practice and instruction in writing, as this complex skill does not develop naturally. This also requires educators to continually seek new and creative ways to teach composition which help students succeed. Possible topics include but are not limited:
• Presentations that draw on student texts or amplify student voices
• Pedagogues using a civic engagement/service-learning approach
• Pedagogues foregrounding the role of social justice in writing
• Projects examining the creativity and/or changes to pedagogical approaches for teaching writing of student writing
• Examinations of language difference and/or the changes in verbal and technical approaches in the 21st century classroom.
• Examinations of dialogues of change: student and professor, citizen and female, etc.
• Presentations which examine the changes in teaching writing online versus face-to-face writing
• Activist/alternative approaches to writing assessment
• Successful strategies for teaching writing students in the 21st century classroom
The section encourages presentations that draw on student work as a primary text as well as interactive presentations that engage audience members.
By June 1, 2022, please submit and abstract of 300-500 words, a brief bio, and any A/V or scheduling requests to Lisa Diehl, Chairperson, at
