Composing and Community: The Teaching of Style as a Tool of Critical Pedagogy.
Pace, Tom
This paper discusses the importance of stylistic variety to the writing of beautiful language, even as that writing is used as a tool of critical consciousness. It begins by discussing the application of style for socially responsible rhetorical communication, through revealing to students that language used in multiple rhetorical situations both reflects and creates their multiple social identities. It then argues that the lack of teaching of style is due to the shift from process writing to socially created knowledge, explaining that many instructors assume style means teaching a narrow view rather than critical literacy. It concludes that style can find a place within critical pedagogy. (EF)
