Remixing Composition: A History of Multimodal Writing Pedagogy (Studies in Writing and Rhetoric) by Jason Palmeri .

I would recommend this book without reservation to graduate students in English or education interested in literacy in the information age; faculty members and administrators looking to change their approach to technology who also want to root their decisions in rich scholarship; and to upper-division English majors headed for graduate study or teacher education programs.

Revealing the writing process through interactive learning Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond presents writing .

One of the first textbook authors to focus on multimedia composing, Lester Faigley employs his own advice to engage students in every step of the writing process-for both college composition and everyday life-and pulls back the curtain on how writers work.

Stephen Mark Shore (born September 27, 1961) is an autistic professor of special education at Adelphi University. He has written the books that include: College for Students with Disabilities, Understanding Autism for Dummies, Ask and Tell, and Beyond the Wall. Currently, he serves on the board of Autism Speaks, and is one of the first two autistic board members in its history, looking to improve the potential of those on the autism spectrum.

To establish the issues that must be con­sidered by evaluators of college writing programs, Witte and Faigley review major evaluation studies conducted at the Uni­versity of Northern Iowa, the University of California San Diego, Miami Univer­sity, and the University of Texas.

 

For each study the authors devise a series of questions that probe every as­pect of theory, pedagogy, and research: What do we presently know? What as­sumptions are we making and how do those assumptions limit our knowledge? Are those limitations necessary or de­sirable? What do we still need to know?

 

Such questions demand much of pro­gram evaluators, who also must face additional difficult questions as they evalu­ate a writing program. Do the instructors conducting the writing classes share common assumptions that are reflected in their assignments, evaluative pro­cedures, teaching procedures, and course content? How stable will the program prove to be over time? Will the writing program have a lasting effect? Do stu­dents leave the program with increased confidence in their ability to write?

 

As Witte and Faigley urge program evaluators to pose these questions, they also bring to the problem a new compre­hensive conceptual framework that both necessitates such queries and provides an opportunity to answer them.
