Laura McGrath

Community-engaged writing partnerships offer students enrolled in a variety of courses opportunities to write to learn and to demonstrate knowledge, to write for audiences and purposes beyond the classroom, and to receive feedback from those audiences. This presentation offers as an example a community-engaged writing partnership that included college students, an environmental education consultant, and local K-12 students and teachers. The college students created environment-themed educational multimedia projects for the K-12 students, and the K-12 students wrote back in a variety of ways. In addition to describing the project, the presenter will involve attendees in planning their own community-engaged writing partnerships that promote engaged student learning. Particular attention will be given to identifying partners, establishing goals, and planning assessments.
