Discussion Questions

  1. What heuristics, or rules of thumb, do you anticipate your students have developed for writing? How might you provide opportunities for students to practice adapting their writing heuristics for new audiences and purposes?
  2. Thinking about a group assignment you’ve used in the past, how might you reimagine it as a scaffolded group assignment that helps students learn to negotiate the social dimensions of the collaborative writing process?
  3. The authors challenge readers to shift the objectives for writing transfer from accommodation to transformation. What might that shift look like in your courses or program?
