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.

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.

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.

"Here is an astonishingly generous gathering of poetic energies and imaginations aimed toward turning more and more classrooms into scenes of transformative engagement with the prime instrument of our humanity, language. The essential work of exploratory play with words is presented in heartening variety in its necessary wildness, surprising pleasures, gravitas, illumination. This book is a catalogue of invention: visionary, pragmatic, surprising, fun---useful because it's inspiring and vice versa. The poets' essays are themselves an affirmation of the vital presence of poetry in our culture, proof and promise, Q.E.D."---Joan Retallock, coeditor, Poetry and Pedagogy: The Challenge of the Contemporary, and author, The Poethical Wager --Book Jacket.

Volume 1 of this sourcebook is a compendium of information about tests used to assess critical thinking, problem solving, and writing. It serves as a tool for people who want comparative data about the policy relevance of specific student outcomes measured in these areas. An interactive version of Volume 1 allows users to specify their areas of interest and create a customized search of assessment measures in the three domain areas. The tests described in Volume 1 are those that are designed to measure cognitive variables for traditional students. The compendium does not describe less traditional methods such as portfolios and competencies. In addition, the evaluations of the tests are based on the way test developers represent them in their materials and, in some cases, in information from third-part reviews. Volume 2 is a companion volume that provides eight case studies of institutions that have addressed related issues through the use of assessment methods in Volume 1. Volume 1 contains the following sections: (1) "General and Specific Issues in Selecting Assessments"; (2) "Critical Thinking and Problem Solving"; (3) "Templates--Critical Thinking and Problem Solving"; (4) "Writing"; (5) "Templates--Writing Commercially Developed Tests"; and (6) "Templates--Writing Locally Developed Tests." Volume 2 discusses the eight case studies and contains four appendixes providing details about the methodology. (Volume 1 contains 10 tables and 150 references.) (SLD)
