Project Description:
This interactive, on-campus Winter Term project introduces students to concepts in writing pedagogy and teaches them to lead exercise-based writing workshops for people with no formal writing background. We read and discuss texts on pedagogy while building our own principles for running a vibrant, inclusive workshop. Class meetings focus on analyzing and responding to readings, developing and practicing exercises, and practicing leading workshops. This project pairs with Holly Handman-Lopez’s Dance Community, Community Dance: Teaching Dance to Anyone to exchange classes in dancing and writing; the dancers teach dance to the writers, while the writers teach writing to the dancers.

Number of students: 8

Dates: January 6th - January 27th, 2020
