Rhetoric and reality : writing instruction in American colleges, 1900-1985 by James A Berlin( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berlin here continues his unique history of American college composition begun in his Writing Instruction in Nineteenth-Century Colleges (1984), turning now to the twentieth century. In discussing the variety of rhetorics that have been used in writing classrooms Berlin introduces a taxonomy made up of three categories: objective rhetorics, subjective rhetorics, and transactional rhetorics, which are distinguished by the epistemology on which each is based. He makes clear that these categories are not tied to a chronology but instead are to be found in the English department in one form o
Writer's block : the cognitive dimension by Mike Rose( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“You don’t know what it is,” wrote Flau­bert, “to stay a whole day with your head in your hands trying to squeeze your un­fortunate brain so as to find a word.” Writer’s block is more than a mere matter of discomfort and missed dead­lines; sustained experiences of writer’s block may influence career choices. Writers in the business world, profes­sional writers, and students all have known this most common and least studied dysfunction of the composition process. Rose, however, sees it as a limitable problem that can be precisely analyzed and remedied through instruc­tion and tutorial programs.” Rose defines writer’s block as “an in­ability to begin or continue writing for reasons other than a lack of skill or com­mitment,” which is measured by “pas­sage of time with limited functional/ productive involvement in the writing task.” He applies the information pro­cessing models of cognitive psychology to reveal dimensions of the problem never before examined. In his three-faceted approach, Rose de­velops and administers a questionnaire to identify blockers and nonblockers; through simulated recall, he selects and examines writers experiencing both high and low degrees of blocking; and he proposes a cognitive conceptualization of writer’s block and of the composition process. In drawing up his model, Rose delin­eates many cognitive errors that cause blocking, such as inflexible or con­flicting planning strategies. He also dis­cusses the practice and strategies that promote effective composition
Invention as a social act by Karen Burke LeFevre( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The act of inventing relates to the process of inquiry, to creativity, to poetic and aesthetic invention. Building on the work of rhetoricians, philosophers, linguists, and theorists in other disciplines, Karen Burke LeFevre challenges a widely-held view of rhetorical invention as the act of an atomistic individual. She proposes that invention be viewed as a social act, in which individuals interact dialectically with society and culture in distinctive ways. Even when the primary agent of invention is an individual, invention is pervasively affected by relationships of that individual t
Women writing the academy : audience, authority, and transformation by Gesa Kirsch( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women Writing the Academy is based on an extensive interview study by Gesa E. Kirsch that investigates how women in different academic disciplines perceive and describe their experiences as writers in the university. Kirsch{u2019}s study focuses on the writing strategies of successful women writers, their ways of establishing authority, and the kinds of audiences they address in different disciplinary settings. Based on multiple interviews with thirty-five women from five different disciplines (anthropology, education, history, nursing, and psychology) and four academic ranks (seniors, graduate students, and faculty before and after tenure), this is the first book to systematically explore the academic context in which women write and publish. While there are many studies in literary criticism on women as writers of fiction, there has not been parallel scholarship on women as writers of professional discourse, be it inside or outside the academy. Through her research, for example, Kirsch found that women were less likely than their male counterparts to think of their work as sufficiently significant to write up and submit for publication, tended to hold on to their work longer than men before sending it out, and were less likely than men to revise and resubmit manuscripts that had been initially rejected
Teaching writing as a second language by Alice S Horning( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classrooms filled with glassy-eyed students provide an experiential base for Alice S. Horning's new comprehensive theory about basic writers. Horning explores the theory of writing acquisition in detail. Her examination of spoken and written language and redundancy give a theoretical base to her argument that academic discourse is a separate linguistic system characterized by particular psycholinguistic features. She proposes that basic writers learn to write as other learners master a second language because for them, academic written English is a whole new language. She explores the
Dialogue, dialectic, and conversation : a social perspective on the function of writing by Gregory Clark( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book articulates an ethics for reading that places primary responsibility for the social influences of a text on the response of its readers. We write and read as participants in a process through which we negotiate with others whom we must live or work with and with whom we share values, beliefs, and actions. Clark draws on current literary theory, rhetoric, philosophy, communication theory, and composition studies as he builds on this argument. Because reading and writing are public actions that address and direct matters of shared belief, values, and action, reading and writing shou

Something old, something new : college writing teachers and classroom change by Wendy Bishop( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the complex world of the college writing teacher at work and is intended as a balance to current composition research that focuses almost exclusively on student writers, often ignoring the role the teacher plays in classroom development. The book contains data elicited from observation, surveys, and interviews with college teachers enrolled in a doctoral seminar on teaching basic writing. Also included in the book are case studies of five of these teachers in their college writing classrooms, which investigate how their teaching practices changed and how their professional and personal histories influenced their ability to make those changes. A full chapter is devoted to each teacher's efforts to implement new practices based on the seminar. The first chapter describes the graduate seminar in rhetoric, the next five chapters include the individual case studies, while the final chapter discusses teachers as learners and investigates classroom change. The appendix contains a discussion of data collection strategies and detailed analysis of four figures of data. Also included are 109 references. (Keh)
Toward a grammar of passages by Richard M Coe( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mature writer is recognized ... by his ability to create a flow of sentences, a pattern of thought that is produced, one suspects, according to the principles of yet another kind of grammar-a grammar, let us say, of passages."--Mina Shaughnessy Richard M. Coe has developed such a "grammar," one which uses a simple graphic instrument to analyze the meaningful relationships between sentences in a passage and to clarify the function of structure in discourse. Working in the tradition of Christensen's generative rhetoric, Coe presents a two-dimensional graphic matrix that effectively analyze

Teaching/writing in thirdspaces : the studio approach by Rhonda C Grego( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teaching/Writing in Thirdspaces: The Studio Approach examines a dynamic method of teaching composition that reimagines not only the physical space in which writing and learning occur but also the place occupied by composition in the power structure of universities and colleges." "The studio model emphasizes individual participation in a small group that allows students to present work they are preparing for outside classes, discuss their challenges, and refine their ideas with other students and staff facilitators." "Rhonda C. Grego and Nancy S. Thompson argue that because the studio is physically and institutionally "outside but alongside" both students' other coursework and the hierarchy of the institution, it represents a "thirdspace," a unique position in which to effect institutional change. Teaching/Writing in Thirdspaces provides an alternative approach to traditional basic writing courses that can be adopted in educational institutions of all types and at all levels."--Jacket

The community college writer : exceeding expectations by Howard B Tinberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While there have been several studies of writing programs at larger, baccalaureate institutions, the community college classroom has often been overlooked. Authors Howard Tinberg and Jean-Paul Nadeau fill this gap with The Community College Writer, a systematic and unique case study of first semester writing students at a community college. Drawing on surveys, interviews, and samples of classroom assignments, Tinberg and Nadeau use their research at one community college to reach out to instructors throughout the nation, fostering communication between community college faculty members in the effort to establish full-fledged writing programs geared toward student success. At the heart of the book are the voices of the students themselves, as they discuss both their teachers' expectations and their own. Through a series of case studies, the authors reveal the challenges students face as budding writers, and their firsthand experiences with writing programs at the community college level. With this informative study, Tinberg and Nadeau seek not only to encourage dialogue between student and teacher or community college instructors, but to expand the conversation about program improvement to include both two- and four-year colleges, bringing composition faculty together in an effort to improve writing programs in all schools. Included in the volume are seven appendices, including surveys and interviews with faculty and students, making The Community College Writer a comprehensive and practical guide to tackling the issues facing writing programs and instructors"--Publisher's website
