Fear and Loathing at Chico State

“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly” – Frida Kahlo “If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.” – Malcolm X Fear and Loathing at Chico State (draft) In the Western imagination we seem to have a fetish for dividing the world’s history into a series of well defined goal-posts. In elementary… Read more →

Let me just leave this here…

MMM… “What have I learned so far?” #ExpandLiteracyPractices (shoutout to Kassandra for the hashtag). The END. Just kidding. Lately I’ve been thinking about how I should approach this paper(like most of us are). I really liked the idea that was mentioned in class of a newspaper article. So, I decided that I will be doing it as a magazine article… Read more →

A Lesson in Reflection

It has occurred to me that a number of people in this forum agree on the same thing: that Kate’s essay was unfairly graded. She was following her instructor’s instructions to a T but still received a poor grade along with some rude comments. Thus, we have a problem. Do teachers want essays, or facsimiles? I have mentioned before the… Read more →

I’m Stuck

So when we were discussing in class about the… Read more →

Regarding writing and the theory of writing so far from what we’ve read, both from academic sources and discussed in class, is as broad as it can be specific and unique, depending… Read more →

Papers… Papers Everywhere

What I Know So Far Paper~ As soon as we started talking about this paper, I thought that it would be a good opportunity to conduct interviews with people from other countries. This is mostly because I just love doing that shit. I did something similar with Zach for our final project in Kittle’s 478 and I really enjoyed the… Read more →

Nelson’s main point seemed to be that teachers can’t completely predict how their students will interpret information and communication in the classroom. Kate was a great example of this, and she really resonated with me. Although the information given makes it seem clear that she followed instructions on her assignment sheet, she still received a bad grade and pretty rude… Read more →
