This class is intended for international students who speak English as a second language.  Students will be enrolled directly into the class by the ESL program.  Please contact Jane O’Connor (jcoconn@emory.edu) if you are interested in taking this class.

In this continuing writing, engaged learning course with ESL-support, students will engage in a semester-long exploration of how the rhetorical skills and strategies we use in telling stories can not only allow us to express our individual experiences and identities but also help us curate and produce collective stories for the purpose of community organizing and social change. In collaboration with an Atlanta community partner, the course will include participation in community-centered learning and organizing activities both on and off the Emory campus.
