Meg Gregory Publishes Article in Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching

Lecturer and Assistant Director of the College Writing Program, Meg Gregory, has published an article in the most recent issue of Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching.

The article focuses on an assignment in her History of the English Language course, which she teaches in the English Department at Webster University. In the article, Gregory describes the assignment, a semester-long oral and written activity designed to allow students to gain comfort and confidence with navigating and deploying lingusitic terminology, while also working to ignite student curiosity about the history and future of the English language. The assignment, both generative and creative, offers students the space to make connections between their outside interests and course content, activity intrinsic motivation and leading to deeper learning.
