Abstract

The following research thesis redefines critical compassion as a thematic framework that composition instructors can use to create civic and harmonious classrooms. After establishing a working definition, this research goes further to explore ways critical compassion is already in use in three GSU ENGL 1102 courses, and ways instructors can more mindfully incorporate the framework into their curricula.
