Monday, June 15

10:00 AM - 10:45 AM ET Orientation to Corequisite Composition
Presenter(s): Peter Adams

10:00 AM - 10:45 AM ET Moving Your Corequisite Course Online
Presenter(s): Denise Cady Arbeau
Strategies for teaching (and enjoying!) your corequisite course in an online environment, from the initial transition from face-to-face to best practices for staying connected with students throughout the term


10:00 AM - 10:45 AM ET Walking Up to Success: Songs to Define a Semester
Presenter(s): Anissa M. Graham
Encouraging students to engage with each other and to work on their critical thinking skills at the beginning of the semester often feels like an insurmountable task. This session will explore how music can break the ice for students in a coreq classroom--whether online or face-to-face--by asking them to present a song that encapsulates who they are at the beginning of the semester and how teachers can use those songs to teach critical thinking skills and mindfulness practices.


11:00 AM - 11:45 AM ET Active Learning in Four Acts
Presenter(s): Eric D. Sullivan
Learn about active-learning approaches to different aspects of the writing process.


11:00 AM - 11:45 AM ET Construction Zone: Deconstructing, Reconstructing, and Co-Constructing Texts with Multilingual Writers
Presenter(s): Miriam Moore
In the construction zone, participants will explore scaffolding and tools to support multilingual readers and writers in corequisite classrooms. The session begins with a brief overview and illustration of functional linguistic analysis, a method of deconstructing sentences and paragraphs so that students can reconstruct and then co-construct related models, collaborating with peers and instructors along the way. We will also highlight the ways that construction via functional analysis invites students to be meaning-builders and draw on all of their linguistic resources and experiences. We’ll close the session by addressing questions and concerns. No hard hats required!


12:00 PM - 12:45 PM ET Troubleshoot Your Course / Q&A with Macmillan Authors
Presenter(s): Peter Adams, Miriam Moore, David Starkey
Join a panel of Macmillan authors for open discussion and Q&A around your course needs or any other issues you're encountering with regard to corequisite composition at your institution.


1:00 PM - 1:45 PM ET Reading to Write
Presenter(s): David Starkey

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM ET Team Writing: Scaffolding to Success
Presenter(s): Jill Dahlman
Students are accustomed to writing solitary assignments (Hemingway style optional). However, they will be expected to write with others as they work in group assignments throughout their education or throughout their career. Learning how to negotiate these hurdles, therefore, becomes an important part of learning to write and for providing needed life skills. This workshop aims to discuss how using team-driven assignments in the first-year college composition classroom can ease students into the college writing process and provide them with the efficacy and knowledge to produce their own research essay as a signature assignment.


1:00 PM - 1:45 PM ET Addressing Non-Cognitive Issues in the Corequisite Course
Presenter(s): Pat McGrath
Strategies for tackling the non-cognitive issues that can impede a student’s success in the corequisite course and beyond.

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM ET Labor-Based Grading in the ALP Corequisite Model
Presenter(s): Mark Blaauw-Hara, PhD
Mark Blaauw-Hara, who has been teaching in the ALP model since 2012, will describe how he has adapted Asao Inoue’s labor-based grading framework for use in the co-requisite classroom. Inoue has argued that labor-based grading contracts are especially useful when working with first-generation college students and students of color who may feel disconnected from more traditional grading strategies; he has also argued that labor-based grading can be an essential part of anti-racist writing assessment. Blaauw-Hara has found that labor-based grading is particularly effective in co-requisite writing classrooms, which typically contain students who have an uneasy relationship with more “standard” models of teaching and assessing writing. Blaauw-Hara will discuss his rationale, share his own grading contracts, and help participants identify possible ways they may build labor-based grading into their own classes.


1:00 PM - 1:45 PM ET Reading to Write
