Reflections on Writing: Pedagogy, Expectations, and Best Practices


With the renewed influence on writing competency, instructors at all levels of the educational system are revisiting the ways in which they conceive of good writing and good teaching practices, as well as the ways in which they present these ideas to their students. Further, the current focus on composition pedagogy emphasizes the reflective aspect of the process and serves to encourage instructors to conceive of writing not merely as a sequence of assignments or activities, but as a deliberate representation of the theoretical framework that informs those activities.

CFP: Non-Traditional Approches to Teaching English Studies (2/15/05; collection)

Call for Publication
Collection: Non-Traditional Approaches to Teaching English Studies

This collection addresses a disjunction between the content taught in
English Studies and the theory and practice used to teach this content.
While the canon wars will always rage, non-traditional content based on
race, gender, imperialism, and class has become an expected aspect of the
literatures read and discussed in English classrooms; however while
questions of gender, class, and race have become central aspects of what we
teach, by-and-large how we teach in the English classroom remains firmly
rooted in traditional Western rhetorics and hermeneutics.
