From Product to Process to Post Process: A Convert Questions Her Convictions.
Teague, Deborah Coxwell
The way writing is taught has changed over the last 35 years--in this new century the movement has been to the "post process age" to focus on the role that social factors such as race, class, ethnicity, and gender play in determining writing development. This paper considers how this shift in the writing classroom from an emphasis on product to process to post process has affected the way writing is taught, what students learn, their attitudes about writing, and the grades they receive in their courses. The paper asks that writing teachers think not only about what their students might have gained from this dramatic shift in composition theory and pedagogy, but also what they might have lost. It also describes the teacher's/author's experiences as a teacher of college composition through the years. (NKA)
