Since its public launch in 2008, the Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives (DALN) has collected approximately 7500 unique contributions of people’s literacy experiences from across the globe and from a variety of backgrounds. The Archive as Classroom: Pedagogical Approaches to the Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives showcases the variety of innovative ways educators have used this resource in classroom practice.

Designed as a user-friendly guide for scholars and teachers of college English courses, and especially those with an interest in language and literacy studies, The Archive as Classroom provides an invaluable snapshot of the DALN’s diverse uses in classroom settings. The Archive as Classroom is the first edited collection of its kind to combine theoretically rich digital studies of the DALN’s uses with customizable teaching materials—assignment prompts, rubrics, syllabi, and the like—that readers can borrow and build upon as models for their own classroom, programmatic, or institutional needs.

More than simply a “how-to” guide, this collection is informed by currently identified best practices, evidence-based pedagogy, and the general state of the pedagogical art as it relates to literacy instruction.
