« The nonargumentative research paper | Main | Teaching Resolutions »



I like the idea of a longer, more challenging text and I , too, have largely abandoned the reader. Right now I use a rhetoric and push students to find their own readings. I've thought about bringing in a book-length text alongside the rhetoric, though.

Your post also reminds me of a curriculum committee meeting I attended last year where in arguing for a longer research based assignment, I told the other committee members who were all female, "Length matters." Of course, I immediately felt like an idiot.




Just joined this forum today.

Looking forward to greet you all!

Happy New Year!
