In the face of the continuing discourse of crisis in US education, The Meaningful Writing Project offers readers an affirming story of writing in higher education that shares students’ experiences in their own voices. In presenting the results of a three-year study consisting of surveys and interviews of university seniors and their faculty across three diverse institutions, authors Michele Eodice, Anne Ellen Geller, and Neal Lerner consider students’ perceptions of their meaningful writing experiences, the qualities of those experiences, and instructors’ perspectives on assignment design and delivery. This study confirms that meaningful assignments offer students opportunities to engage with instructors, peers, and texts and are relevant to past experiences and passions as well as to future aspirations and identities. Meaningful writing occurs across majors, in both required and elective courses, and beyond students’ years at college. Additionally, the study makes clear that faculty across the curriculum devote significant care and attention to creating writing assignments that support student learning, as they understand writing performance to be a developmental process connected to overall cognitive and social development, student engagement with learning, and success in a wide variety of disciplines and professions. The Meaningful Writing Project provides writing center directors, WPAs, other composition scholars, and all faculty interested in teaching and learning with writing an unprecedented look into the writing projects students find meaningful.

This volume offers the first comprehensive guide to how high-impact practices (HIPs) are being implemented in online environments and how they can be adjusted to meet the needs of online learners. This multi-disciplinary approach will assist faculty and administrators to effectively implement HIPs in distance education courses and online programs. With a chapter devoted to each of the eleven HIPs, this collection offers guidance that takes into account the differences between e-learners and traditional on-campus students. A primary goal of High-Impact Practices Online is to share the ways in which HIPs may need to be amended to meet the needs of online learners. Through specific examples and practical suggestions in each chapter, readers are introduced to concrete strategies for transitioning HIPs to the online environment that can be utilized across a range of disciplines and institution types. Each chapter of High-Impact Practices Online also references the most recent and relevant literature on each HIP so that readers are brought up to date on what makes online HIPs successful. The book provides guidance on how best to implement HIPs to increase retention and completion for online learners.

This book investigates how the performing arts in higher education nationally contribute to the “high impact practices,” as identified by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU). Using the well-known map of the HIPs for illustrating the centrality of performing arts practices in higher education, the editors and authors of this volume call for increased participation by performing arts programs in general education and campus initiatives, with specific case studies as a guide. Performing arts contribute to the efforts of their institution in delivering a strong liberal arts education that uniquely serves students to meet the careers of the future. This is the first book to explicitly link the performing arts to the HIPs, and will result in the implementation of best practices to better meet the educational needs of students. At stake is the viability of performing arts programs to continue to serve students in their pursuit of a liberal arts education.

This book explores English language arts instruction from the perspective of language as "social actions" that students and teachers enact with and toward one another to create supportive, trusting relations between students and teachers, and among students as peers. Departing from a code-based view of language as a set of systems or structures, the perspective of languaging as social actions takes up language as emotive, embodied, and inseparable from the intellectual life of the classroom. Through extensive classroom examples, the book demonstrates how elementary and secondary ELA teachers can apply a languaging perspective. Beach and Beauchemin employ pedagogical cases and activities to illustrate how to enhance students’ engagement in open-ended discussions, responses to literature, writing for audiences, drama activities, and online interactions. The authors also offer methods for fostering students' self-reflection to improve their sense of agency associated with enhancing relations in face-to-face, rhetorical, and online contexts.

This book offers a platform for engineering educators who are interested in implementing a “creative ways of knowing” approach to presenting engineering concepts. The case studies in this book reveal how students learn through creative engagement that includes not only design and build activities, but also creative presentations of learning, such as composing songs, writing poems and short stories, painting and drawing, as well as designing animations and comics. Any engineering educator will find common ground with the authors, who are all experienced engineering and liberal arts professors, who have taken the step to include creative activities and outlets for students learning engineering.

In today’s high-stakes testing environment, integrating technology into the curriculum is often seen as something “extra” or for use with a few special projects. With the growth in Internet use by even the youngest children, educators urgently need a practical introduction to online literacy and reading comprehension. Reading, Writing, and Literacy 2.0 offers that and more by providing tools and teaching strategies for incorporating online reading and writing into classroom learning, as well as a host of web resources that teachers can draw on to make this happen. All this without endless hours of searching! Denise Johnson’s book connects to the Common Core State Standards and is organized around the Technological Literacy Assessment of the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), which focuses on three areas that characterize a technologically literate person: knowledge, capabilities, and critical thinking and decision making. This resource provides everything reading teachers need to begin using technology to deepen and enrich literacy learning for all students. In addition, the author maintains a companion blog to update and add helpful teaching links. Book Features: An explanation of the concept and practices of literacy 2.0, and how it differs from literacy 1.0. Specific examples and resource links for using technology with diverse learners in the K–8 classroom, including translation sites and multilingual materials. Examples of teacher-to-student and student-to-student wiki and blog interactions. Companion blog offers ongoing support, including links to resources, new teaching tools, classroom examples, and more. “There are many things that I love about this book. It is written with a voice wise to both the opportunities and the challenges of classroom teaching. It also contains a vast number of ideas that can be immediately used in your classroom. Of course, too, it describes effective teaching of new literacies with so many new technologies. In addition, it begins by providing a clear and compelling framework to put all of the upcoming ideas into a package that will make perfect sense to any teacher.” —From the Foreword by Donald J. Leu, Neag Chair in Literacy and Technology, University of Connecticut, Neag School of Education “Written in a clear and practical format, this book weaves research-based practices across print and digital literacy worlds into engaging learning communities for younger and older readers alike. Denise Johnson’s innovative lessons and assessment ideas provide step-by-step supports for designing curriculum in a Web 2.0 world.” —Julie Coiro, University of Rhode Island
