Pedagogy and Data Collection

This section of the blog is dedicated to sharing both theory and research in support of increasing digital media literacy in writing classrooms. 

If we do not ask if there is need for required composition but, rather, if there is need to teach critical language awareness, of which producing text is a central part, whenever we can command sites to do so, I cannot fathom how the radically inclined can answer in the negative. Empirical studies are necessary to document good work, but they are not needed to make the initial case.

–Keith Gilyard, in “Basic Writing, Cost Effectiveness and Ideology”
