We have begun to ask questions about how digital video assignments enhance the student's composition process. Results from this study and the collected data—including students' brainstorming activities, interactions, script writings and revisions, reflections, and feedback—will hopefully initiate a community of inquiry and discussion/reflections about curriculum design and encourage important adjustments based on students’ feedback and progress.

“We Cannot Teach Composition in Isolation--Anything We Say is Culturally Shaped.”

n this interview, Shirley Wilson Logan reflects on her major roles as a scholar, teacher, and an administrator. She describes her journey as chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, only one of a few black women to do so. Logan is also credited with launching the study of African American women’s rhetoric as a field, writing one of the early books on African American women rhetors. Logan discusses her motivations for writing this book, With Pen and Voice: A Critical Anthology of Nineteenth-Century African American Women, and makes connections between her scholarly focus and her work as both a teacher and an administrator.
