Contrastive Rhetoric in Technical-Writing Pedagogy at Urban Institutions.
Panetta, Clayann Gilliam
College ESL, v7 n2 p70-80 Dec 1997
Argues that contrastive-rhetoric theory is particularly applicable to technical-writing pedagogy, because of the increase in the number of English-as-a-Second-Language technical-degree programs. Four suggestions for including contrastive rhetoric in pedagogical change include these: (1) more focus on contrastive-rhetoric theory in training future technical-writing instructors; (2) faculty-development workshops that focus on contrastive-rhetoric theory; (3) expectations for technical-writing pedagogy; and (4) a rally for technical-writing textbook reform.
