Synopsis:

Harris, Miles and Paine ask:  What happens when the texts that students write become the focus of a writing course? In response, a distinguished group of scholar/teachers suggests that teaching with students texts is not simply a classroom technique, but a way of working with writing that defines composition as a field.

In Teaching with Student Texts, authors discuss ways of revaluing student writing as intellectual work, of circulating student texts in the classroom and beyond, and of changing our classroom practices by bringing student writings to the table. Together, these essays articulate a variety of ways that student texts can take a central place in classroom work and can, in the process, redefine the ways our field talks about writing.

Review:

Teaching with Student Texts offers new perspectives, insights, and approaches to working with and thinking about student texts and representations of student writing. Equally important, it also opens new questions and opportunities for exploration about intersections and divergences among the ways that instructors work with student texts – in individual programs and across programs and institutions. It is a rich, useful, and provocative book.

Linda Adler-Kassner, University of California, Santa Barbara; author of The Activist WPA, winner of the 2010 CWPA Best Book Award

The idea that working with student writing defines what happens in composition classrooms may seem so axiomatic that it’s hardly worth mentioning. But this is why Teaching with Student Texts is so valuable. It turns out, as the various contributors show, there is quite a bit to say about working with student writing—to give examples of how to do it, certainly, but as a way to explore what it means to value student writing as an intellectual practice and intellectual resource. This thoughtful attention to teaching with student texts is the book’s platform, and, to my mind, its inquiries set a new standard of informed practice.

John Trimbur, Emerson College; author of The Call to Write
