March 22, 2010

Dr. Kristen Welch, Assistant Professor of English, is the co-author of a peer-reviewed article that appears in the March 2010 issue of the journal Teaching English in the Two-Year College (TETYC). The article, "Teaching Visual Rhetoric in the Composition Classroom," was co-written by students Nicholas Lee and Dustin Shuman, then freshmen in her Freshman Composition (English 150) course in fall 2008 (Shuman is now a sophomore, Lee has since left Longwood). The article, available online through databases in Greenwood Library, is based on how students in that class interpreted two writing assignments.

TETYC, published four times a year, is for instructors of English in two-year colleges as well as for teachers of first- and second-year composition in four-year institutions. The journal publishes theoretical and practical articles on composition, developmental studies, technical and business communication, literature, creative expression, language, and the profession.

Dr. Welch, who also is director of the Writing Center and program coordinator of the Rhetoric and Professional Writing Program, recently built a libguide to support faculty teaching writing intensive courses. She was assisted by three interns: seniors Amanda Barker and Amanda Wacker and junior Katherine Long. Barker and Long are concentrators in Rhetoric and Professional Writing in the English Department.
