FR05 - Play/Write – Bringing the Procedural Rhetorics (and Fun!) of Games to the Composition Class 
November 18, 2011   12:30pm - 1:15pm

This workshop session will focus on the ways that games and gaming practices can be used in the composition class. After a brief explication of the intersections of games and writing (looking at ways to write about games, write around games, write within games, and write games themselves), participants will engage in hands-on game design and play activities that can be used in composition classes. This session will use analog (paper/card) games, but a brief discussion of online/digital games for writing classes will also be provided.

At the end of this session, instructors should have a set of tools they can use to develop assignments using games or gaming practices that will fit their local contexts and institutional needs.

(Note: this session draws on Play/Write workshops the presenter co-facilitated at the Conference on College Composition and Communication in 2009, 2010, and 2011)
