I will be exploring hyperdocs as a means of reimagining/designing the memoir and literary journalism units for Con Lit classes.  As part of my SMART goal this year, I have been incorporating different instructional strategies to enhance student engagement and promote ownership of their writing as a means of improvement.  At this juncture, I am using feedback from the first semester classes to alter the capstone units for each term-memoir and literary journalism essay.  I have recently started investigating hyperdocs and see a possibility for increasing engagement and reaching a broader audience.
