Writing Lives: A Model for Student Engagement?

What is the value of interdisciplinary studies? What do students gain through experiential learning in the community? In this forum, English Instructor Rachel Mines will use Langara’s Writing Lives Project as a learning model that can potentially be adapted to other courses and programs.

Writing Lives: The Holocaust Memoir Project is a two-semester program in its final semester. Last semester, students learned about the history of the Holocaust. This semester, students are interviewing and writing the memoirs of local Holocaust survivors. Research ethics, interview strategies, and memoir writing are some of the hands-on skills students are learning in the classroom and out in the community.

Should this model be used to further student engagement? Join in the discussion.
