Product Description


"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

Her research focuses on issues in composition pedagogy, including community engagement practices, and student and teacher reflection. She recently co-authored the research-writing textbook Research Matters with Rebecca Moore Howard.

Her scholarship on composition pedagogy has appeared in a variety of edited collections and most recently (with Rupiper Taggart) in the International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. In 2010 she was inducted into the DaVinci Institute for creativity and innovation in higher education. Her research centers on composition pedagogy and rhetorical ingenuity.

For anyone who wants a good primer for the current theories and pedagogical models in the field of rhetoric-composition, this work fits the bill. I'm using it for a graduate class, and reading it affords me confidence to approach the field with some grounding.
