Conversations about Genre, part 8
A video letter from Valentina, Jhoan, Sandra, and Valentina
One student group created a video they call a “conversational letter” to ask their questions. Appropriately for their use of more recent technology, many of their questions were about how ideas have changed and evolved over the past many decades. You can watch their video on my website, using the link below:
I did not take them up on their invitation to use their conversational letter format in my own response. Why? Probably mostly because I was more familiar with using written text for complex ideas and to think things through. You will find the results in the next entry in this series of Conversations about Genre. In part 9, I respond to many of the students’ questions, including these students’ questions about how I teach genre and how my thinking has changed.
