C1: Gaming Narratives: Bridging Literature, Rhetoric and Composition, and Second Language Writing

Session abstract or description: 

The presenters have come together to interrogate how the fragmented narratives of digital texts and games can bring innovative ways of reading, discussing, and interpreting texts into second language writing classrooms. Bringing game narratives, more specifically variations of hypertext stories, into the second language classroom allows students to observe how nonlinear narratives are constructed, encouraging students to explore identity, cultivate motivation, and work autonomously.
