Forum Theme 2
For a few years now I’ve been describing to colleagues in the UNI English Department some of the ways I’ve been trying to engage students with their writing in the sections of College Writing and Research that I teach, and more than once they’ve said, “I wish I could take your class.” And as I’ve continued to reread Van Doren’s 1943 book on liberal education (on which I wrote an article that was published in UNIversitas a couple years ago), I’ve found that his thoughts help me to explain some of these concepts and activities, ways to engage students with what I call the “phenomena of words.”
