Using Genre Studies to Develop Alternative Teaching Genres
This document began as a talk at the Genre 2012 Conference, which took place at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario. This version of the talk argues that it’s critical for instructors in our “genre/CHAT” program to do their own “genre investigations” of the basic genres that shape and control classroom activity.

Here is another new document — this time it’s a basic handout that discusses the strategies authors can use to become “writing researchers” as they investigate genres in context. It’s designed as a handout for students. Instructors can use the handout as is, but they can also download the MSword file and adapt the handout for use in their classrooms.
We’ve got a new White Paper ready for instructors and students in the writing program to use. It was created by Kellie Sharp Hoskins and Erin Frost and it’s a really valuable resource for understanding and using CHAT as part of your teaching and learning in the writing program. It’s short, easy to read, and provides both an overview and specific ways to use CHAT in your teaching. Check it out!
