Relations, Locations, Positions: Composition Theory for Writing Teachers

This anthology for beginning teachers and graduate students in composition studies and other related fields begins with the premise that writing is always social, a dialogue between self and other. This “social turn” not only underscores the value of the writing process by encouraging students to prewrite, draft, and revise together, but, more important, it also focuses on postprocess by foregrounding approaches to teaching writing that highlight the importance of context. Thus, this anthology seeks to move “beyond process” by building on the valuable lessons from process pedagogy and by promoting the idea that writing stands for a radically complex network of phenomena.
