Item description for Revision: History, Theory, and Practice (Reference Guides to Rhetoric and Composition) by Horning Alice...

Like its predecessors in Charles Bazerman's series on Reference Guides to Rhetoric and Composition, Revision: History, Theory, and Practice explores the wide range of scholarship on revision while bringing new light to bear on enduring questions. Starting with its overview of conventional definitions and misconceptions about revision, whether surface or deep, Revision then offers both theoretical and practical strategies designed to facilitate post-secondary writing instruction. The twelve contributors examine recent cognitive writing models and the roles of long- and short-term memory in the writing process, demonstrating theoretically why revision is difficult for novices. Revision pays close attention to the meaning and function of revision for various writers, from basic to professional, creative, and second language writers. Revision concludes with a detailed presentation of practical pedagogical strategies for teaching revision, with emphasis on revision in textbooks, technology-rich contexts, and peer review. Authors include Anne Becker, Cathleen Breidenbach, David Stephen Calonne, Douglas Eyman, Catherine Haar, Alice Horning, Kasia Kietlinska, Robert Lamphear, Cathy McQueen, Colleen Reilly, Jeanie Robertson, and Carol Trupiano. ANNE BECKER is a special instructor and the coordinator for journalism and communication internships at Oakland University. ALICE HORNING directs the Rhetoric Program at Oakland University and is a professor of Rhetoric and Linguistics. She has published several books on the nature of texts and human literacy, including, most recently, REVISION REVISITED (Hampton, 2002). With Debra Dew, she is the co-editor of UNTENURED FACULTY AS WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS: INSTITUTIONAL PRACTICES AND POLITICS (Parlor Press, 2006).
