Taking readers inside a first-year college writing classroom and inviting them to reflect on the social, interpersonal, and institutional issues being worked through in specific classroom discussions, this book presents an account of an honestly politicized college writing classroom and focuses on authentic classroom practices and actual students' voices. Moving beyond familiar debates between process/expressivism and critical pedagogy, the book envisions theory and praxis to be complex and dynamic processes, thereby articulating a pedagogical practice that combines strengths of both sides within current pedagogy. Chapters are: (1) Visions, Versions, and Composing Pedagogies; (2) Politics and Pedagogies; (3) Embodied Processes: Composing Power and Revisioning Pedagogies; (4) Making Pedagogy Visible: Critical Pedagogy in Process; (5) Revisionary Pedagogy; (6) Composing (as) a Critical Process; and (7) Revisioning Communities in the Contact Zone. (Contains approximately 135 references.) (EF)
