Less Instructions, More Choice: Creating Assignments for All Students

The more instructions an instructor gives students, the less students have agency in the creation of their assignments and the more students come to see writing in the classroom as different from the writing they do outside the classroom. By giving students less instructions, instructors can give students more agency and more opportunities to see writing as multimodal and connected in a variety of ways to the many different networks they inhibit. Through hands-on activities, this mini-workshop will explore practical approaches to writing brief instructions and to helping students use such instructions to create meaningful writing projects.
