Quoted: William Cheng on Students and First Person Narrative

“When we empower students to write with I, what we convey is: Stand up for yourself and take responsibility for what you say. Once you’ve found a voice, start thinking of all the people whose voices continue to go unheard,” says Assistant Professor of Music William Cheng in a Slate blog post about why he wants students to do more writing in the first-person voice.

Cheng is a Dartmouth Public Voices Fellow.
