Designed for college writing teachers who are faced with teaching composition for the first time or re-examining their teaching goals and methods, "The Allyn & Bacon Sourcebook for College Writing Teachers" is a collection of writings on important theories and pedagogies in composition studies. The selections discuss a range of theories and approaches to teaching writing and present readers with a number of options for instruction rather than a single way to teach. Written by some of today's foremost scholars and teachers, the articles range from discussing how to integrate critical thinking and reading into writing instruction to methods for responding to and evaluating student writing to dealing with grammar and editing. For those who teach writing.

By its arrangement and its contents, this collection of essays performs at least two important functions for teachers of writing: it demonstrates that the work of our recent past is still valuable, and it contributes to the efforts of recent years to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Such a new vision of our history and a new level of understanding between practitioners and theorists could provide the foundation for a more productive, enlightened disciplinary future, explains Gary Tate in the foreword to this collection. Teaching Writing: Landmarks and Horizons, edited by Christina Russell McDonald and Robert L. McDonald, is designed to present an overview of some of the major developments in the establishment of composition studies as a field during the past thirty-five years. The essays are theoretically grounded but are focused on pedagogy as well. Divided into two parts, the first presents nine landmark essays, selected and introduced by distinguished composition scholars, and the second brings together eight new essays by emerging scholars.

Teachers Sourcebook for Extensive Reading

The best way for students to learn to read and to come to love reading is – surprise, surprise – by reading in quantity. Unfortunately, many of today’s students read far too little. This lack of time spent reading is particularly unfortunate, as reading constitutes a bedrock skill, essential in all subject areas. Thus, we teachers need to devote curriculum time to not only teaching students how to read but also to encouraging them to read extensively. This is what Extensive Reading is all about. Teachers Sourcebook for Extensive Reading provides hundreds of teacher tested ideas on how to do Extensive Reading. The book begins with an introduction to ‘the what’ and ‘the why’ of Extensive Reading. Thereafter, the book consists of three parts. Part 1 discusses finding materials for Extensive Reading. Part 2 offers ideas for motivating students to read and for activities that students might do after they read or while they are reading, including cooperative learning activities. Part 3 looks at how teachers can serve as advocates for Extensive Reading. Among the book’s distinctive features are breaks for reflection, first person accounts from teachers, and ideas for doing Action Research and other forms of teacher investigation and research on Extensive Reading. We hope that you will find the Teachers Sourcebook for Extensive Reading to be a practical book, but also informed by theory and researh. We also hope this book will make a difference for your students in their test scores and, even more, in their attitude toward reading, now and in the future.

This provocative and sometimes humorous collection of essays—written by college writing teachers for college writing teachers—explores seldom-discussed issues to help TAs develop confidence in overcoming classroom challenges. Teachers, both seasoned and new to the profession, create a dialogue by sharing their rich and varied experiences and responses to classroom and department situations. Each Part presents 4 to 7 short essays by Adjuncts and TAs, focusing on their experiences and "lessons learned." At the end of each Part, more experienced teachers respond to the ideas generated in the preceding essays and add their own advice, concerns, and solutions. Part 1: Approaching the Classroom centers on entering a new writing program and succeeding as a foreign-born writing teacher. Part 2: Inside Out focuses on gaining confidence as a teacher and managing sexual politics and power struggles in the classroom. Part 3: Beyond the Classroom helps readers question the teaching profession and offers advice on surviving department politics. An Appendix provides a useful listing of composition texts that offer further helpful advice.

A Sourcebook for Responding to Student Writing is a resource for writing teachers. It provides a range of teacher comments on a sampling of college student papers and an anthology of key statements on theory and practice of responding to student writing. Specifically, the book presents: twenty-five sets of responses, made on a sampling of five student papers, including expressive, explanatory, evaluative, and argumentative writing; comments by a variety of teachers both well-recognized composition scholars who have contributed to the research on teacher response and college English teachers whose primary area of study is outside composition; two additional essays without accompanying teacher comments, for further practice; a detailed bibliography on teacher response; a collection of noted articles on reading, evaluating, and responding to student writing[.] Free of analysis and apparatus, the book may be used by teachers in their own ways, according to their own assumptions, predilections and goals, to develop better ways of responding to student writing. --From cover.

From the Preface: This collection of lessons and assignments reflects our conviction that good teaching should make the composition classroom a place of initiation as well as instruction, in which the teacher becomes the catalyst for a growing engagement with reading and writing, showing students not only how to read and write but also why they should care about the whole enterprise. In fulfilling this purpose, most teachers act as practitioners, not theorists or researchers, and are habitually, incorrigibly, and (in our view) appropriately, eclectic in their methods. No theory can be adequate to all situations; what most teachers want to know is, "What works?" The enthusiasm and generosity with which teachers all over the country have responded to out invitation to submit their best lessons and assignments indicates that this need is widely felt, and we hope the collection will be of service not only to new teachers but also to experienced teachers who wish to keep their teaching fresh and effective. In choosing the lessons we have welcomed widely different styles and strategies in teaching, since we feel that good teaching in composition is necessarily more diverse (and probably more difficult) than in almost any other subject, and that it grows out of a teacher's own instincts and experience. Thus we endorse no single method or vocabulary but have tried to represent a range of temperaments, approaches, teaching levels, student bodies, and institutions. We think that teachers of many kinds will find here material for inspiration, instruction, or emulation.

The role of the writing program administrator is one of diverse activities and challenges, and preparation for the position has traditionally come through performing the job itself. As a result, uninitiated WPAs often find themselves struggling to manage the various requirements and demands of the position, and even experienced WPAs often encounter situations on which they need advice. The Writing Program Administrator's Resource has been developed to address the needs of all WPAs, regardless of background or experience. It provides practical, applicable tools to effectively address the differing and sometimes competing roles in which WPAs find themselves. Readers will find an invaluable collection of articles in this volume, addressing fundamental practices and issues encountered by WPAs in their workplace settings and focusing on the hows and whys of writing program administration. With formal preparation and training only now beginning to catch up to the very real needs of the WPA, this volume offers guidance and support from authoritative and experienced sources--educators who have established the definitions and standards of the position; who have run into obstacles and surmounted them; and who have not just survived but thrived in their roles as WPAs. Editors Stuart C. Brown and Theresa Enos contribute their own experience and bring together the voices of their colleagues to delineate the intellectual scope and practices of writing program administration as an emerging discipline. Established and esteemed leaders in the field offer insights, advice, and plans of action for the myriad scenarios encountered in the position, encouraging WPAs and helping them to realize that they often know more than they think they do. This resource is required reading for the new WPA, and an essential reference for all who serve in the WPA role. As a guidebook for WPAs, it is destined to become a fixture on the desk of every educator involved with or interested in administrating writing programs, writing centers, and writing-across-the-curriculum efforts.

Evaluating Children's Writing: A Handbook of Grading Choices for Classroom Teachers, Second Edition introduces and explains a wide range of specific evaluation strategies used by classroom teachers to arrive at grades and gives explicit instructions for implementing them. Samples of student writing accompany the instructions to illustrate the techniques, and an appendix of additional student writing is provided to allow readers to practice particular evaluation strategies. More than just a catalog of grading options, however, this is a handbook with a point of view. Its purpose is to help teachers become intentional about their grading practices. Along with recipes for grading techniques, it offers a philosophy of evaluating student writing that encourages teachers to put grading into a communication context and to make choices among the many options available by determining the instructional purpose of the assignment and considering the advantages and disadvantages of particular grading strategies. Specific grading techniques are integrated with suggestions about the craft of evaluation--guidelines for instructional objectives, for student audience analysis, and for teacher self-analysis that help define communication contexts. New in the Second Edition: *a new chapter on state standards and assessments; *a reorganization of the chapter on approaches to grading; *additions to the chapter on management systems; *additions to the chapter on teaching yourself to grade; *additions to the annotated bibliography; and *updated references throughout the text.

The essays in this book argue that the active learning strategies that teachers trained in composition use for their literature courses can be exported to other disciplines to enhance both teacher performance and student learning. The book provides and explains examples of those strategies and illustrates how they have been effectively used in other disciplines.
