Rhetorical Traditions and the Teaching of Writing.
Knoblauch, C. H.; Brannon, Lil
Following an introduction by James Britton, this book discusses the attitudes and values giving rise to effective writing instruction. The seven chapters examine the following topics: (1) achieving a philosophical perspective on composing through awareness of how writers actually work; (2) assumptions underlying classical rhetoric; (3) writing as both the means of learning and the form given to knowledge; (4) modern rhetoric as a starting point in thinking about discourse; (5) applying modern rhetorical theory to the classroom; (6) providing a facilitative response rather than directive commentary on student essays; and (7) the nature of writing improvement and writing evaluation in a workshop setting.
