Title:Warrior Writers in the Writing Classroom
Description:Because writing classrooms may well be the primary locations where students' military experiences emerge in their college curriculum, writing instructors, in particular, bear special ethical responsibility when teaching veterans. Writing programs need to consider how an influx of "warrior writers" alters their classrooms and challenge instructors to consider the changing demographics of student writers when making decisions about the types of writing they assign and the kinds of support they offer to their students.
