    A must have for those interested in composition studies and pedagogy Foundational collection.

    Not the best summer reading, but certainly informative I must admit that sometimes books like this make me question my interest in teaching composition Oh, Peter Elbow, how I prefer you to this.

    A rather useless compendium of the current research into teaching composition If you have an interest in the topic, by all means, dive right in, but this is the opposite of my literary and teaching interests.I have never been shy in my position that education science and pedagogy are totally vacuous it never ceases to amaze me how many pages some critical theorist can fill up with scientifically stolen words that simply say, we learn to write within a certain context This 1700 page tome A rather useless compendium of the current research into teaching composition If you have an interest in the topic, by all means, dive right in, but this is the opposite of my literary and teaching interests.I have never been shy in my position that education science and pedagogy are totally vacuous it never ceases to amaze me how many pages some critical theorist can fill up with scientifically stolen words that simply say, we learn to write within a certain context This 1700 page tome of research only goes to further my hatred for the development of a pedagogy surrounding the teaching of writing As an example, read this gem from James Berlin s article on the ideology of teaching composition, and his made up social epistemic rhetoric the real is located in a relationship that involves the dialectical interaction of the observer, the discourse community in which the observer is functioning, and the material conditions of existence Goodness gracious one, yes, duh, we learn to write by establishing and directing relationships between author, message, audience, etc two, what the hell is material conditions of existence supposed to do with learning to write a bloody essay What does it even frakin mean Goodness, noEditorial note I obviously didn t read this entire collectionlike a healthy sampling due to my assignments in grad school

    This is a thorough collection of readings on the history and theory of composition studies There are a lot of good sections that would prove useful to anyone reading and researching most comp related topics With such a wide variety of essays and a useful alternative table of contents, which helps find essays by topic there is almost certain to be something here on most subjects Also, many of the essays included here are crucial reading in their own right.However, there are a couple of signi This is a thorough collection of readings on the history and theory of composition studies There are a lot of good sections that would prove useful to anyone reading and researching most comp related topics With such a wide variety of essays and a useful alternative table of contents, which helps find essays by topic there is almost certain to be something here on most subjects Also, many of the essays included here are crucial reading in their own right.However, there are a couple of significant limitations to the book as well One of the main problems I found is that there is fairly little editorial background context for many of these essays, so if the ideas issues raised in them are not current concerns, the reader may not know that For instance, if a 1983 essay is pushing for a process based approach to composition pedagogy, that may provide interesting background, but it isn t a current debate because many most university comp programs utilize process based pedagogy These essays including papers from the 1950s and earlier are included as important foundational material, but I would have liked to seeeditorial attempts to contextualize various arguments though I accept that those editorial contextualizations would soon be outdated as well

    An intimidating collection of compositional theory that will reward the determined reader I was surprised at how often I found myself underlining passages of exceptional insight expressed through beautifully worded prose My favorite essays were The Social Contexts of Argumentation by Chaim Perelman, Inventing the University by David Bartholomae, Uncommon Ground Narcissistic Reading and Material Racism by Barbara Schneider, and Rhetorical Sovereignty What Do American Indians Want from An intimidating collection of compositional theory that will reward the determined reader I was surprised at how often I found myself underlining passages of exceptional insight expressed through beautifully worded prose My favorite essays were The Social Contexts of Argumentation by Chaim Perelman, Inventing the University by David Bartholomae, Uncommon Ground Narcissistic Reading and Material Racism by Barbara Schneider, and Rhetorical Sovereignty What Do American Indians Want from Writing by Scott Richard Lyons.There is scholarship in this anthology worthy of your inquiry and attention

    I enjoyed the articles in the collection, but many of them were pretty dense I read this for a Theory and Practice of Writing class that I dropped I would recommend it for anyone interested in theories of writing and some empirical research especially the Flower Hayes research I enjoyed the articles in the collection, but many of them were pretty dense I read this for a Theory and Practice of Writing class that I dropped I would recommend it for anyone interested in theories of writing and some empirical research especially the Flower Hayes research

    Very dry collection of essays about composition studies Very informative though I am forced to read this for a class, because otherwise I could easily findinteresting reading material.

    If you want a solid history of composition studies, this is it.
