Industry Reviews

"A great resource for writing teachers and writing program administrators. It provides ready access to current discussions about teaching writing, and does so succinctly."--Brian Whaley, University of Oregon "An excellent overview. This book would be useful not only for composition scholars and instructors, but for anyone in any field who feels obligated to teach his or her students how to write."--Tom Philion, University of Illinois-Chicago "Provides a broad-based awareness of contemporary perspectives on composition pedagogy."--Jerie Weasmer, Eastern Illinois University Praise for the previous edition (first 4 quotes): "A classic introduction to the profession, for which the editors have selected a series of essays whose focus is openly practical and pedagogical--thus adamantly reasserting the close connection of our scholarship with the classroom. A wide-ranging and useful collection of essays for teachers, both beginning and experienced."--College Composition and Communication "Still the best casebook for new writing teachers."--Patrick Scott, University of South Carolina "Each edition of the book is stronger than the previous one. Both within and among chapters there is appropriate balance of theory and practice--just what new teachers need."--Duane H. Roen, Arizona State University "Ideal for a course in teaching College Comp!"--Russ Larson, Eastern Michigan University
