We share our best practices in teaching writing to freshman college students in a joint project between New York University and Long Island University. In this effort, we have found that appropriating rather than resisting technological fluency facilitates many of the problems arising out of the changed academic environment. As teachers at an urban university with students from diverse backgrounds, we find ourselves working, in our first year writing courses, to complicate both the writers' identities our students bring and the teacher identities they expect us to enact. Online media have offered some new opportunities for the exploration and complication of both identities in the commonly-used Blackboard. BlackBoard is a generic virtual classroom, not designed specifically for a writing class. Its communicative tools have limitations. We designed and developed the E-Discussions site to meet the specific writing needs of our student population.
