Panel: Pass the Paper's Theme that Holds the Future

Abstract

This panel will explore the notion of trains as useful metaphor in composition. The presenters consider locomotive progress as a liberating force in freshman writing, discuss how the metaphorical use of the locomotive can encourage students to make connections, and spotlight a “crossroads” perspective where an observer must “read” each individual “rail car” to determine the purpose of a text.
