Comment Boxes

These student-centered videos about instructor and peer comments on assigned essays, titled "'Shit-plus,' 'AWK,' 'Frag,' and 'Huh?': An Empirical Look at a Writing Program's Commenting Practices" were presented at the annual Conference on College Composition and Communication in San Francisco. Although Nancy Sommers produced a similar video about student reactions to written comments years ago that presented similar findings of miscommunication, the vernacular quality of this online video production produces a decidedly different rhetorical effect.
