Emergent Strategies for an Established Field: The Role of Worker-Writer Collectives in Composition and Rhetoric
Parks, Steve; Pollard, Nick
College Composition and Communication, v61 n3 p476-509 Feb 2010
We argue that the Federation of Worker Writers and Community Publishers, with its dual emphasis on literacy and occupational skills, can serve as a new model for writing classrooms and writing program administrators. We further contend that the "contact zone" classroom should be replaced with community-based "federations." (Contains 9 notes.)
