Writing, Redefined

Broadening our ideas of what it means to compose

Writing, Redefined challenges teachers to expand our thinking of writing beyond pen and paper. It gives us the power to change what “counts” as writing in schools and classrooms, opening the doorway to students who may not consider themselves to be writers, but should and can. Shawna offers alternative, engaging writing assignments that are visual, aural, and multimodal that will involve all students. There is no question that composition in its most common, alphabetic form is important and worthy of frequent study, practice, and play, but broadening our definition of writing opens up an enormous range of possibilities for composing for all students. Even teachers who might feel unprepared to embrace such a new approach will find Shawna’s specific suggestions and examples intriguing, perhaps irresistible.
