Writing matters : rhetoric in public and private lives by Andrea A Lunsford( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lunsford is a scholar of rhetoric and composition, and many undergraduates taking courses in those subjects have used her textbooks. Here she helps us see that writing is not just a mode of communication, persuasion, and expression, but a web of meanings and practices that shape our lives. Lunsford tells how she gained a new respect for our digital culture's three v's - vocal, visual, verbal - while helping design and teach a course in multimedia writing. On the importance of having a linguistically pluralistic society, Lunsford draws links between such varied topics as the English Only movement, language extinction, Ebonics, and the text messaging shorthand "133t.""--Jacket
Reclaiming rhetorica : women in the rhetorical tradition( )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women's contribution to rhetoric throughout Western history, like so many other aspects of women's experience, has yet to be fully explored. In pathbreaking discussions ranging from ancient Greece, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, to modern times, sixteen closely coordinated essays examine how women have used language to reflect their vision of themselves and their age; how they have used traditional rhetoric and applied it to women's discourse; and how women have contributed to rhetorical theory. Language specialists, feminists, and all those interested in rhetoric, composition, and communication, will benefit from the fresh and stimulating cross-disciplinary insights they offer

Essays on classical rhetoric and modern discourse by Robert J Connors( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eighteen essays by leading scholars in English, speech communication, educa­tion, and philosophy explore the vitality of the classical rhetorical tradition and its influence on both contemporary dis­course studies and the teaching of writing. Some of the essays investigate the­oretical and historical issues. Others show the bearing of classical rhetoric on contemporary problems in composition, thus blending theory and practice. Com­mon to the varied approaches and view­points expressed in this volume is one central theme: the 20th-century revival of rhetoric entails a recovery of the clas­sical tradition, with its marriage of a rich and fully articulated theory with an equally efficacious practice. A preface demonstrates the contribution of Ed­ward P. J. Corbett to the 20th-century re­vival, and a last chapter includes a bibli­ography of his works

The Right to literacy by Andrea A Lunsford( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains 29 essays which grew out of presentations delivered at a conference on the right to literacy whose participants were invited to consider differing definitions and historical understandings of literacy and the political, pedagogical, and theoretical implications of the many approaches to literacy education that have been taken both in the United States and abroad. The book's first part, "Contexts," explores the national, local, and professional contexts of literacy; it raises critical questions both about the large social and political perspectives that inform the understanding of literacy that is generally accepted in America and about the social and political conditions that restrain or enable the realization of literacy. Part 2, "Speaking out of the Silences," explores how literacy is denied not only by overt censorship but also by the subtler and more insidious forces of racism, sexism, homophobia, and elitism; these essays offer ways of helping others to envision and attain the power to speak out. Part 3, "Literacy and Its Enemies, Illiteracy and Its Friends," offers critical perspectives on those conceptions of literacy and methods of literacy education that ultimately subvert its attainment as a right of citizens. Part 4, "Creating and Sustaining Literacy," offers curricular and pedagogical models for successful literacy efforts at different educational levels and in diverse cultural situations. The volume concludes with a synthesis of themes and an articulation of concerns that require continued critical scrutiny. (Sr)
The English Coalition Conference : democracy through language by Richard Lloyd-Jones( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Compiled from the three-week English Coalition conference of 60 leaders in the English teaching profession, this report examines the way English and the language arts are taught at all levels of education today, and the problems in society and education that interfere with learning. Conferees represented the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and its constituent groups for college teachers of writing, high school English department chairs, and teacher educators; the Modern Language Association (MLA) and its affiliated Association of Departments of English; the College English Association, and the College Language Department. Areas discussed in the report include: (1) the teacher's role in the English classroom; (2) curriculum goals and emphases at all levels; (3) literacy education; and (4) recommendations for change in education. Resolutions proposed by various coalition subgroups and approved in general terms by the conference participants are also included in the report, and concern the place of media studies in the English/language arts curriculum, English as a foreign language, tracking in elementary and secondary schools, testing and assessment, teacher education and professional growth, the rights and responsibilities of students and teachers, and current conditions for the teaching of writing in colleges and universities. The report also includes a series of concrete illustrations of the problems and practices dealt with in the resolutions, as well as bibliographies on the issues, conditions, and concepts that figure in the report. A diary of conference events and a list of participants are also included. (MM)

"Built on the keystones of rhetoric, Everyone’s an Author provides a strong foundation for authoring in the digital age: in college essays, but also on Twitter; in print, but also online; with words, but also with sound, video, and images. It shows students that the rhetorical skills they already use in social media, in their home and religious communities, at work and in other nonacademic contexts are the same ones they’ll need to succeed in college. Examples and readings drawn from across multiple media and dealing with topics that matter to students today make this a book that everyone who takes first-year writing will relate to."
