5:30-6:30 PM EST Audience, Speaker, Purpose | Featured Speakers: Karen Labonte and Rick Kreinbring
Audience, Speaker, Purpose: for as long as we can remember, writing teachers have relied on the Rhetorical Triangle to guide us in teaching writing. But when we teach writing in cyberspace, the Rhetorical Triangle seems suddenly (and surprisingly) complex. In this presentation, Karen and Rick bring participants into the fourth dimension of the elements of the Rhetorical Triangle. What do we need to see differently? What new factors arise? Join them for a lively journey into this brave new world.

7:00-8:00 PM EST Engineering Electracy in English Language Arts | Featured Speaker: Jon Wargo
In this interactive session, Dr. Jon Wargo takes us from static notions of literacy to emergent forms of what Gregory Ulmer and Sarah Arroyo have called “electracy” in digital writing. Illuminating the multiplicity of meanings, augmenting our imagination towards more just futures, and embodying parody, electric is illustrative of playful invention through digitally mediated forms of communication. Grounded in classroom action and practice across the K-12 spectrum, this session will help you think of digital writing as not just a process and product, but as an aesthetic and affective experience inclusive of all learners.
