dc.description.abstract “Writing for Change” is comprised of three year-long, immersive sections of First-Year Composition. During the 2020-2021 year, the pilot courses were offered in partnership with the Muncie Mission, Beyond I Can and the YWCA of Delaware County. Students spent one semester learning about ethical community engagement and growing as composers of a variety of texts. They interacted with their community partners to learn about the issues most important to their mission and conducted primary and secondary research on these issues. During the second semester, students worked to determine how writing could support the work of their community partners by creating documents seeking financial backing, facilitating organization and contributing to community awareness. They formulated a strategic plan and collaborated to create a series of texts on behalf of their partner organization. Students wrote proposals, designed brochures, and created web content for their community partners. By asking students to fulfill real-world needs, these courses developed students’ sense of social responsibility and understanding of how to write for specific audiences and purposes en_US
