The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors introduces two conversations to the tutor's preperation, one about the creation of knowledge in writing programs, the other about tutor research. This approach to tutor training provides several benefits. First, it allows tutors to test their theories ofwhat might work in a writing center session and helps them to move professional conversation towards why such things happen. They bridge the theory-practice divide that often frustrates both novices and experiences tutors. By conducting research to answer such questions, tutors can help themselves, the writers with whom they work, their fellow tutors - and the writers with whom they work. And, further, this approach gives the reader new methods for appreciating and critiquing scholarly work, making it easier tounderstand the best ways to help writers and to move the field forward.As writing tutoring programs take on a variety of forms and pursue a range of missions, this book aims to create a flexible text whose contents can be easily rearranged to support a broad spectrum of reader needs. Each chapter, accordingly, can be read independently; the text does not rely on asequential reading to create meaning.The book also includes intra-textual and extra-textual references for the reader who wants to inquire further. That is, throughout the book are references to material in other chapters that might be of interest to the reader intrigued by the topic at hand. So too, in each chapter, we includereferences to and citations of the scholarship that supports much of the "common knowledge" of the field, including, in the Handbook, both previous tutor education textbooks and research from the field. The aim is to aid the interested reader's inquiry into the scholarship of the field as well as toground advice about practice in research that testifies to the effectiveness a range of tutoring practices. Much of the scholarship cited throughout the book is authored by undergraduate tutor-researchers as well as several former tutors who were graduate students when they published their articles. This crucial aspect best models the ways in which tutors themselves can bring together practice andresearch, in their day-to-day work and in their informed thinking about this work. Including tutor voices is an important tradition of the tutor education textbook because these are voices that speak to the issues concerning tutors in a range of institutions and programs across the country.

Die Notwendigkeit, kulturelle und ästhetische Bildung in didaktischen Zusammenhängen zu verorten, liegt auf der Hand. Neben den bereits bestehenden außerschulischen Aktivitäten gilt es, Zugänge zur kulturellen und ästhetischen Bildung stärker in den schulischen Alltag zu integrieren und dort zu etablieren, um allen Schülerinnen und Schülern eine Teilhabe zu ermöglichen. Der Band möchte einen Beitrag dazu leisten, dieses in der Lehrkräfteausbildung zu verankern. Hierzu werden die am Institut Deutsch als Zweitsprache/Deutsch als Fremdsprache der Universität Duisburg-Essen entwickelten und durchgeführten didaktischen Konzepte zur fachlichen, sprachlichen und kulturellen Bildung vorgestellt. Sie beziehen sich sowohl auf die Primar- als auch auf die Sekundarstufen I und II und umfassen die Bereiche Kunst, Musik, Theater, Literatur und Bewegung.

Composition, Rhetoric, and Disciplinarity

Edited by four nationally recognized leaders of composition scholarship, Composition, Rhetoric, and Disciplinarity asks a fundamental question: can Composition and Rhetoric, as a discipline, continue its historical commitment to pedagogy without sacrificing equal attention to other areas, such as research and theory? In response, contributors to the volume address disagreements about what it means to be called a discipline rather than a profession or a field; elucidate tensions over the defined breadth of Composition and Rhetoric; and consider the roles of research and responsibility as Composition and Rhetoric shifts from field to discipline. Outlining a field with a complex and unusual formation story, Composition, Rhetoric, and Disciplinarity employs several lenses for understanding disciplinarity—theory, history, labor, and pedagogy—and for teasing out the implications of disciplinarity for students, faculty, institutions, and Composition and Rhetoric itself. Collectively, the chapters speak to the intellectual and embodied history leading to this point; to questions about how disciplinarity is, and might be, understood, especially with regard to Composition and Rhetoric; to the curricular, conceptual, labor, and other sites of tension inherent in thinking about Composition and Rhetoric as a discipline; and to the implications of Composition and Rhetoric’s disciplinarity for the future.

Researching Writing is an accessible, informative textbook that teaches undergraduates how to conduct ethical, authentic research in writing studies. The book introduces students to the research approaches used most often and offers a course framework for professors creating or teaching research courses themselves. Author Joyce Kinkead lays out the research process, including finding and defining questions, planning, and starting the research. Expository content introduces the language and methods of writing research, and specific methods are demonstrated in published examples, illustrating student work using student work and showing that it is possible for students to join the scholarly conversation in writing studies. Other features include student activities, instructor resources, student resources, and links to external content on journal websites, digital publications, YouTube, and similar work. The first-ever textbook for research methods in writing studies for undergraduates, Researching Writing takes a hands-on approach that excites and engages students in the depth and complexities of research and will influence the creation of courses in new writing majors as the field continues to grow.

Leading with the provocative observation that writing programs administration lacks "an established set of texts that provides a baseline of shared knowledge ...in which to root our ongoing conversations and with which to welcome newcomers" Landmark Essays on Writing Program Administration focuses on WPA identity to propose one such grouping of texts. This Landmark volume is the cornerstone resource for new Writing Program Administrators and graduate students when seeking an ever-important overview of the literature on Writing Program Administration. Drawing broadly across scholarship in writing programs and writing centers, Ritter and Ianetta work to historicize, theorize and problematize the ever-shifting answers offered to the question: Who -- or what -- is a WPA?

Around the Texts of Writing Center Work

Around the Texts of Writing Center Work reveals the conceptual frameworks found in and created by ordinary writing center documents. The values and beliefs underlying course syllabi, policy statements, website copy and comments, assessment plans, promotional flyers, and annual reports critically inform writing center practices, including the vital undertaking of tutor education. In each chapter, author R. Mark Hall focuses on a particular document. He examines its origins, its use by writing center instructors and tutors, and its engagement with enduring disciplinary challenges in the field of composition, such as tutoring and program assessment. He then analyzes each document in the contexts of the conceptual framework at the heart of its creation and everyday application: activity theory, communities of practice, discourse analysis, reflective practice, and inquiry-based learning. Around the Texts of Writing Center Work approaches the analysis of writing center documents with an inquiry stance—a call for curiosity and skepticism toward existing and proposed conceptual frameworks—in the hope that the theoretically conscious evaluation and revision of commonplace documents will lead to greater efficacy and more abundant research by writing center administrators and students.
