Wake Forest 2014 First-Year Students: What They Know (and Don't Know!) About Academic Writing and Reading

  1. Wednesday, September 10th, 20143:30pm - 4:45pm

Based on written essays and surveys from the entering 2014 class of first-year students, Dr. Aull will offer faculty insights into the “state of the state” of our incoming students’ perceptions and proficiency in academic reading and writing. She will especially discuss patterns in students' self-reported experiences with academic writing as well as linguistic and rhetorical patterns in students' essays related to evidence and argumentation. She will share examples of challenging issues, answer questions, and discuss the implications for teaching writing to these first year students.
