Writing Culture and Identity

Spring 2010


Think of our class as a research group and this wiki as a tool for sharing information and communicating with eachother. This site is the hub for four separate courses on two different campuses. We'll discuss our reading, share ideas about our research, and post links to useful articles, videos, webpages, blogs and photos. Our work together will help us to enrich our ideas, and create new opportunities for learning from eachother.

About Wikis

A Wiki is a web page that can be edited by its members. That means you. Do not be nervous about using this tool.
I began my undergraduate studies with an electric typewriter; if I can figure this out, so can you. I have a lot of sympathy for those students who are a little hesitant to use new technology. If this sounds like you, please understand that you can ask me any question and we can figure it out together. I am learning how to use this Wiki at the same time you are.
The "Help" link at the top right of the page is extremely useful for any questions about how to use our site. Or use this link to a helpful video What's a wiki?

List of Pages

On the right, you'll find a list of pages that follow the work we'll be doing this semester. On each page, I have added assignment sheets, model essays and articles, links to helpful sites, and other items of interest. Feel free to add your own material as the semester progresses.
In addition to the pages in common, each of the four classes will have its own page for calendar updates and special messages.

I am looking forward to working with you,

Sarah Rider
