Intended for teachers at all levels involved in composition instruction, this revised edition reflects the dynamic growth occurring in the discipline of writing, and consolidates advances made in teaching methodology.

Vygotsky, are organized into the following categories: (1) introduction to writing as a worthy and personally satisfying activity as well as an emerging scholarly discipline, (2) motivating student writing, (3) writing at the sentence level, (4) writing at the paragraph level, (5) the pedagogy of composition from classical rhetoric to current practice, and (6) the state of the art of teaching and research in writing.
