This article, which is coauthored by former and current SIG (special interest group) leaders, describes the SIG's history, its member profile, and the scholarly and teacherly endeavors that have grown from their work together. The article also describes the significance of this successful partnership beyond the immediate work of the SIG, including examples of curricular innovation and disciplinary scholarship emerging from these scholarly collaborations. The authors end with goals for the future of the SIG as well as the future of English educator-compositionist collaboration as NCTE moves into its second century.
