I have been questioning my own assertion that we should teach code in our composition classes. Perhaps I feel it is more important to teach students to be more aware of the role technology plays in their lives. To ask them: how and where do you compose yourself in your various spaces? Why do you pick these spaces, and what do you get out of composing there? The identity of the writer depends upon where they are writing just as much as what they are writing. A space defines what can be said. A discourse community will shape how. We can create curriculum around showing and encouraging students to look critically at how language, identity, and ideology function in the social spaces to which they already belong, thus subverting the familiar and the everyday-taken-for-granted. What do you think this will offer them?
