What Works for Me, and for that Matter, for Us
Moe, Peter Wayne
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v40 n4 p364-383 May 2013
"Teaching English in the Two-Year College's" series "What Works for Me" is a unique artifact in the development of composition as a field. In this article, the author claims "What Works for Me" as a valuable genre, a hybrid of new and old disciplinary forms. In the spirit of Derek N. Mueller's "Views from a Distance: A Nephological Model of the CCCC Chairs' Addresses, 1977-2011" and Mark Blaauw-Hara's "Mapping the Frontier: A Survey of Twenty Years of Grammar Articles in TETYC"--both insightful pieces longitudinally examining a scholastic corpus--the author takes up the past ten years of "What Works for Me," 66 pieces written by 56 authors. Building his analysis of the genre around its titular key words, the author begins with the "What" of a "What Works for Me," looking to what lessons and exercises these pieces propose, ferreting out how the genre fits in relation to "teaching tips." (Contains 8 notes.)
