End of Composition Studies






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Southern Illinois Univ Pr
Summary: Setting forth an innovative new model for what it means to be a writing teacher in the era of writing across the curriculum, "The End of Composition Studies" urges a reconceptualization of graduate work in rhetoric and composition, systematically critiques the limitations of current pedagogical practices at the postsecondary level, and proposes a reorganization of all academic units. David W. Smit calls into question... two major assumptions of the field: that writing is a universal ability and that college-level writing is foundational to advanced learning. Instead, Smit holds, writing involves a wide range of knowledge and skill that cannot be learned solely in writing classes but must be acquired by immersion in various discourse communities in and out of academic settings. """The End of Composition Studies" provides a compelling rhetoric and rationale for eliminating the field and reenvisioning the profession as truly interdisciplinary--a change that is necessary in order to fulfill the needs and demands of students, instructors, administrators, and our democratic society.

Smit, David W. is the author of End of Composition Studies, published 2007 under ISBN 9780809327515 and 0809327511. Three End of Composition Studies textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, two used from the cheapest price of $43.00, or buy new starting at $47.49.
