Emerging scholarship on Generation Z college students reveals their preference for scrollable, itemized, image-rich texts on six-inch screens. This scholarship coincides with present struggles instructors face when including literary texts in upper-level, foreign language courses where traditional long-form writing assessments are included. This session presents a way of reconciling both realities by programming texts that immediately show writing as a powerful expression through which to advocate for social justice, a passionate topic for Generation Z students. By using the little-known pamphlet—the Chevalier de Saint-George’s masterful text Nous sommes donc trois? ou le Provincial à Paris (1790)— I present ways to foster engaged reading and inspired writing among today’s foreign language students.
