Short enough to be synoptic, yet long enough to be usefully detailed, A Short History of Writing Instruction is the ideal text for undergraduate courses and graduate seminars in rhetoric and composition. It preserves the legacy of writing instruction from antiquity to contemporary times with a unique focus on the material, educational, and institutional context of the Western rhetorical tradition. Its longitudinal approach enables students to track the recurrence over time of not only specific teaching methods, but also major issues such as social purpose, writing as power, the effect of technologies, the rise of vernaculars, and writing as a force for democratization. The collection is rich in scholarship and critical perspectives, which is made accessible through the robust list of pedagogical tools included, such as the Key Concepts listed at the beginning of each chapter, and the Glossary of Key Terms and Bibliography for Further Study provided at the end of the text. Further additions include increased attention to orthography, or the physical aspects of the writing process, new material on high school instruction, sections on writing in the electronic age, and increased coverage of women rhetoricians and writing instruction of women. A new chapter on writing instruction in Late Medieval Europe was also added to augment coverage of the Middle Ages, fill the gap in students' knowledge of the period, and present instructional methods that can be easily reproduced in the modern classroom.

Keywords in Writing Studies is an exploration of the principal ideas and ideals of an emerging academic field as they are constituted by its specialized vocabulary. A sequel to the 1996 work Keywords in Composition Studies, this new volume traces the evolution of the field’s lexicon, taking into account the wide variety of theoretical, educational, professional, and institutional developments that have redefined it over the past two decades. Contributors address the development, transformation, and interconnections among thirty-six of the most critical terms that make up writing studies. Looking beyond basic definitions or explanations, they explore the multiple layers of meaning within the terms that writing scholars currently use, exchange, and question. Each term featured is a part of the general disciplinary parlance, and each is a highly contested focal point of significant debates about matters of power, identity, and values. Each essay begins with the assumption that its central term is important precisely because its meaning is open and multiplex. Keywords in Writing Studies reveals how the key concepts in the field are used and even challenged, rather than advocating particular usages and the particular vision of the field that they imply. The volume will be of great interest to both graduate students and established scholars.

While education is based on the broad assumption that what one learns here can transfer over there – across critical transitions – what do we really know about the transfer of knowledge? The question is all the more urgent at a time when there are pressures to “unbundle” higher education to target learning particular subjects and skills for occupational credentialing to the detriment of integrative education that enables students to make connections and integrate their knowledge, skills and habits of mind into a adaptable and critical stance toward the world This book – the fruit of two-year multi-institutional studies by forty-five researchers from twenty-eight institutions in five countries – identifies enabling practices for, and five essential principles about, writing transfer that should inform decision-making by all higher education stakeholders about how to generally promote the transfer of knowledge. This collection concisely summarizes what we know about writing transfer and explores the implications of writing transfer research for universities’ institutional decisions about writing across the curriculum requirements, general education programs, online and hybrid learning, outcomes assessment, writing-supported experiential learning, e-portfolios, first-year experiences, and other higher education initiatives. This volume makes writing transfer research accessible to administrators, faculty decision makers, and other stakeholders across the curriculum who have a vested interest in preparing students to succeed in their future writing tasks in academia, the workplace, and their civic lives, and offers a framework for addressing the tensions between competency-based education and the integration of knowledge so vital for our society.

Institutions of higher learning seem traditionally isolated from the realities of the neighborhoods around them. But increasingly, colleges and universities have thrown open their gates and made a public turn toward school-community partnerships, bringing literacy activities to the streets and service-learning opportunities to faculty, staff, and student volunteers. Paula Mathieu is one such faculty volunteer, and in Tactics of Hope she examines the workings behind the public turn in composition studies at several institutions. Recounting various types of initiatives, she describes how these ideas for outreach were received by both local residents and members of the campus, and she outlines how each side worked together to relieve town-gown tensions. More important, Mathieu examines why a tactical, not strategic, approach to outreach provides the most flexibility for all involved and creates the best opportunities for real learning and deeper interaction between volunteers and their community. Outside the dormitories, the classrooms, and the gates of every university live people who can benefit from public-academic partnerships. And on the inside of those very same structures are people who can benefit equally. Read Tactics of Hope and discover ideas and tactics for tapping the transformative power of learning on and from the streets.

Heeding the call of noted rhetoric scholar Richard E. Young to engage in serious, scholarly investigations of the assumptions that underlie established practices and habits about writing, the contributors to this critical volume study a diverse array of disciplinary issues, situate their work in a wide matrix of theoretical perspectives, and engage in multiple modes of inquiry and in multiple discourses. In section 1, the authors consider the history, present state, and potential future directions of the research, scholarship, and pedagogies of the field. Section 2 presents the theoretical, historical, and empirical investigations of particular kinds of rhetorical theories and practices. Section 3 offers discussions of specific writing programs and pedagogical approaches. After an introduction by Maureen Daly Goggin, essays in the book are: (1) "A Rhetoric for Literate Society: The Tension between Expanding Practices and Restricted Theories" (Charles Bazerman); (2) "Accounting for 'Well-Worn Grooves': Composition as a Self-Reinforcing Mechanism" (Maureen Daly Goggin and Steve Beatty); (3) "Cross-Disciplinarity in Rhetorical Scholarship?" (Janice M. Lauer); (4) "Shaping Sophisticates: Implications of the Rhetorical Turn for Rhetoric Education" (Joseph Petraglia); (5) "Rhetoric and the Ecology of the Noosphere" (Robert Inkster); (6) "The Modesty of Aristotle's 'Rhetoric'" (Eugene Garver); (7) "Classical Rhetoric in American Writing Textbooks, 1950-1965" (Karen Rossi Schnakenberg); (8) "Reinventing Memory and Delivery" (Winifred Bryan Horner); (9) "From Heuristic to Aleatory Procedures; Or, Toward 'Writing the Accident'" (Victor J. Vitanza); (10) "Bridging the Gap: Integrating Visual and Verbal Rhetoric" (Lee Odell and Karen McGrane); (11) "Inventing the American Research University: Nineteenth-Century American Science and the New Middle Class" (Danette Paul and Ann M. Blakeslee); (12) "Scientific Writing and Scientific Thinking: Writing the Scientific Habit of Mind" (Carol Berkenkotter); (13) "The Rhetoric of Social Action: College Mentors Inventing the Discipline" (Elenore Long); (14) "WAC, WHACK: You're an Expert--NOT!" (Sam Watson); (15) "Can Writing Be Taught? Being 'Explicit' in the Teaching and Learning of Writing across the Curriculum" (Stuart Greene and Rebecca Schoenike Nowacek); (16) "Notes on the Evolution of Network Support for Writing across the Curriculum" (Mike Palmquist); and (17) "Pedagogical Invention and Rhetorical Action in Writing across the Curriculum" (Jo-Ann M. Sipple, William L. Sipple, and J. Stanton Carson). (Each chapter contains references.) (RS)
