My presentation was part of the “Collaborative Crosscurrents in First Year Composition” panel at CCCC 2009. We were scheduled at the same time as several other panels I know I would have liked to attend, and also many people seemed to hightail it out of town on Saturday. Let’s just say the three of us were very familiar with our audience members (*cough* people across the hall in Pullman *cough*).
Because I thought my presentation was at least minimally interesting—if not for its failure to produce any results related to my original research question, then for the song and dance I did during the extemporaneous version (just kidding. there was no song, no dance)—and because I wanted to try out Slideshare, I put together this version of the talk. In real life I only had 11 slides, but I had to try to capture the rest of what I was saying in order for it to make some sense. Therefore, I give you an embedded slideshow.
[Note: if you want context for the class/cluster I’m discussing, you can skim this really long post I wrote about it: FYE, FYC, and why I was really busy in Fall ‘08.]
