Although most writing instructors know the benefits of collaborative learning and writing in college writing classes, many remain unsure how to implement collaborative techniques successfully in the classroom. This collection provides a diversity of voices that address the “how tos” of collaborative learning and writing by addressing key concerns about the process. Fresh essays consider the importance of collaborative work and peer review, the best ways to select groups in classes, integration of collaborative learning techniques into electronic environments, whether group learning and writing are appropriate for all writing classes, and ways special populations can benefit from collaborative activities. Despite its challenges, collaborative learning can prove remarkably effective and this study provides the advice to make it work smoothly and successfully.

Collaborative writing has attracted much attention in the last 25 years, though it eludes clear definition. In its simplest sense, it is writing done by more than one person. But in a broader sense, even a work by one author involves collaboration: the author typically builds on the work of others, and the author's writing is generally revised in light of the comments of reviewers. This bibliography includes annotated entries for nearly 1000 articles and books on collaborative writing published between the early 1970s and 1997. The bibliography is divided into two broad parts on collaborative writing in academic and nonacademic settings. Within each part, entries are grouped in topical sections. Author and subject indexes allow easy access to the entries.

Teaching Writing Creatively represents a challenge to conventional notions of genre. It seeks to break down the artificial, antiquated barriers between "creative" and "academic" writing, making the writing classroom experience a more imaginative one. Teaching Writing Creatively features many of the most respected names in composition-instructors with long, successful histories of providing teachers with functional yet inventive methods of teaching writing. The collection begins with articles that assert that all good writing must be, in some important sense, "creative." These contributors offer accounts of the transformation of their composition classrooms; essays that demonstrate that good student writing is only marginally about genre; and a critique of the creative writing workshop as a model for the composition class. Part II offers a variety of ways to approach the teaching of writing as a creative endeavor. It includes articles on helping students better understand their own writing processes and suggestions on alternative composing strategies and their classroom applications. The contributors to the final section offer a variety of new approaches to creative writing that can be successfully applied to expository writing courses as well. Student-centered and process-oriented, Teaching Writing Creatively is a book writing instructors will find immediately useful-particularly composition instructors who feel hemmed in by the conventional expectations of writing courses and creative writing instructors looking to take advantage of the latest innovations in composition studies.

The Writing of Business sees writing as an essential tool for creating personal and organizational strategies for managing an increasingly complex workplace. To help students use their writing to attain these goals, the authors have employed a powerful heuristic: GRACE. GRACE represents five essential kinds of generative questions - Goals, Readers, Arguments, Conventions, and Expression - for analyzing a writing situation and generating specific questions leading to effective written documents. Grounded in rhetoric, The Writing of Business contextualizes traditional sentence and paragraph conventions within the realities of the business world, such as globalization, outsourcing, and constantly changing technology. A business writing text that is reader-friendly in both content and voice, The Writing of Business equips students for a radically changed workplace. This book presents a vision of writing as an activity that is central and essential to doing business in the 21st Century.
