Workshop Description:

Attention Educators:

This webinar focuses on ways teachers can close read Malcolm X and Frederick Douglass titles to display to students how autobiographical writing can open up economic opportunities both as a manner to practice writing (a marketable skill) and as an aid in decision making, as writing about oneself can clarify their place in the world, where they would like to go and how they may best achieve their goals. Moreover, by highlighting the fact that these autobiographical texts did change the world, students will be able to see the rhetorical power that lies in writing autobiographically --- that being able to describe yourself affects the way others see you.

Presenter: Jonathan Wolf, Fordham University.
