Too often both composition teachers and their students experience knowledge and authority as unchanging entities that cannot be challenged in classroom exchanges. Drawing on feminist, cultural, and poststructuralist theory, as well as work in the rhetorical tradition and composition studies,
Hill offers less debilitating methods of thinking that teachers can model for their students. Richly illustrated with examples of classroom interactions and student work, the book also shows teachers how to enrich their own intellectual and political lives within the academy.

Industry Reviews

"Hill synthesizes a great deal of theory to offer us a critical examination of composition studies. Her analyses are fresh and insightful."--Duane H. Roen, Arizona State University "Serves as an excellent introduction to the pros and cons of various approaches to teaching composition and points to the complexity of this process."--Choice "A really fine book. Several aspects of it are especially winning, but overall, it is a genuine and fresh voice, given with conviction, wisdom, rich but sensible scholarship, and an unusually fine sense of the practicalities of teaching writing."--David Bleich, University of Rochester "Hill synthesizes a great deal of theory to offer us a critical examination of composition studies.
