Title

Decoding Millennial Literacy and Its Application to First-Year Composition: Data and Discussion

Abstract

For decades, the curriculum and pedagogy of first year composition (FYC) courses at many universities has seen very little change. Simultaneously, reading and writing have changed in the midst of ongoing technological innovations, and large numbers of the cohort referred to as Millennials have entered college. In hopes of discovering a keener understanding of the ways next generation methods inform the writing process, the presenters will share the data they gathered on how to engage millennial writers in the first-year writing classroom.

In hopes of discovering a keener understanding of the ways next generation methods inform the writing process, the presenters will share the data they gathered on how to engage millennial writers in the first-year writing classroom.
