Item description for The Politics of Second Language Writing: In Search of the Promised Land by Paul Kei Matsuda...
The POLITICS OF SECOND LANGUAGE WRITING: IN SEARCH OF THE PROMISED LAND is the first edited collection to present a sustained discussion of classroom practices in larger contexts of institutional politics and policies. Contributors focus on the policies on assessment, placement, credit, class size, course content, instructional practices, teacher preparation, and teacher support. They examine politics in terms of the relationships and interaction between second language writing professionals and colleagues at the program, department, school, college, and university levels and beyond. Contributors also explore-through critical reflections and situated descriptions of their teaching practices in larger institutional contexts-how these policies and politics affect pedagogical practices. Readers will learn why classroom practices are not neutral, pragmatic space but ideologically saturated sites of negotiation. Contributors include Danling Fu, Marylou Matoush, Kerry Enright Villalva, Ilona Leki, Ryuko Kubota, Kimberly Abels, Angela M. Dadak, Jessica Williams, Wei Zhu, Guillaume Gentil, Kevin Eric DePew, Xiaoye You, Deborah Crusan, Sara Cushing Weigle, Jessie Moore Kapper, Christine Norris, Christine Tardy, Stephanie Vandrick, and Barbara Kroll. Paul Kei Matsuda is associate professor of English and Director of Composition at the University of New Hampshire. Christina Ortmeier-Hooper is a Ph.D. candidate in Composition Studies at the University of New Hampshire, where she teaches first-year composition, ESL, advanced composition, and teacher education courses. Xiaoye You is assistant professor of English at The Pennsylvania State University, where he teaches courses in rhetoric, writing, and the teaching of writing.
