Teaching with Student Texts (edited collection)

We invite you to propose a contribution to Teaching with Student Texts, a collection of essays focusing on the practice of using student texts in writing classrooms and other settings. We seek essays describing how teachers can use texts written by the students they are working with to illustrate the moves, strategies, principles, and forms of critical reading and academic writing.

Composition, Rhetoric, and Popular Culture (11/9/2007; PCA/ACA 3/19-22/2008)

The Composition and Rhetoric Area of the PCA/ACA seeks papers/projects addressing the intersection of Popular Culture with Composition studies and/or Rhetoric, as each of these terms can be most broadly construed.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Composition and rhetoric in literature
* Composition and rhetoric in film
