Despite the often innovative and vital work of secondary educators in the United States, high schools and normal schools have not been widely explored as important sites in the disciplinary history of composition-rhetoric. Histories of High School and Normal School Writing Instruction will address this gap by providing a robust collection of archival studies of normal school pedagogies, high school classroom and extracurricular practices, and teacher research.

'The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the 'state of emergency' in which we live is not
the exception but the rule. We must attain to a conception of history which is in keeping with this
insight. Then we shall clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency,
and this will improve our position in the struggle against fascism.'
