Abstract
This talk will engage the first hallmark, specifically its focus on audience. Misreading, instead of being seen as a bad habit, is embraced in this talk as a teaching moment that exposes students to the importance of impact as it relates to knowing one's audience. Writing for an audience is an opportunity to teach empathy. In this way, writing becomes a praxis of social justice, of what Paolo Freire calls “conscientizacao.”
