"A Guide to Composition Pedagogies provides students with the theoretical framework that they will need to understand teaching composition and to develop their own pedagogical concepts. More importantly, it provides realistic, applicable examples of what can and does happen in composition classrooms and how instructors of composition shape students' college experiences as writers and thinkers."--Carol Zitzer-Comfort, California State University-Long Beach
"The second edition of A Guide offers a breadth of coverage, range of perspectives, and conciseness not found in many texts that help new and seasonsed composition teachers and scholars remain current on the climate of composition studies."--The Journal of Teaching Writing
