9780822963776: In the Archives of Composition: Writing and Rhetoric in High Schools and Normal Schools (Pitt Comp Literacy Culture)

In the Archives of Composition offers new and revisionary narratives of composition and rhetoric’s history. It examines composition instruction and practice at secondary schools and normal colleges, the two institutions that trained the majority of U.S. composition teachers and students during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Drawing from a broad array of archival and documentary sources, the contributors provide accounts of writing instruction within contexts often overlooked by current historical scholarship. Topics range from the efforts of young women to attain rhetorical skills in an antebellum academy, to the self-reflections of Harvard University students on their writing skills in the 1890s, to a close reading of a high school girl’s diary in the 1960s that offers a new perspective on curriculum debates of this period. Taken together, the chapters begin to recover how high school students, composition teachers, and English education programs responded to institutional and local influences, political movements, and pedagogical innovations over a one-hundred-and-thirty-year span.

About the Author:

Lori Ostergaard is associate professor and chair of the department of writing and rhetoric at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
Henrietta Rix Wood is assistant teaching professor in the Honors College at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Review:

“This volume deepens our understanding of writing education by moving beyond the university setting to examine the high school and normal school context. In so doing the book engages narratives familiar to the field and introduces stories that have been overlooked or ignored, complicating our histories while broadening our methodological horizons. It should be required reading for all writing teachers and historians.”
—Suzanne Bordelon, San Diego State University

“An important collection for scholars in the field of composition and rhetoric. It explores an area of history in our field that is rarely covered and contributes greatly to an unknown area. Thorough, engaging, and very readable.”
—Lisa Mastrangelo, Centenary College of New Jersey
