Can students produce their own learning content? Cathy Davidson (@cathyndavidson) thinks so, and has been challenging educators to make this happen. Last semester I modestly attempted answer her call by asking my students to create their own annotated critical edition of a literary text. This assignment was part of a “Literary Research” seminar, a gateway course that introduces students to research methodologies for the literature major. One of its pedagogical goals is to train students to recognize how the critical reception of a text changes over time.
