Harper, Rebecca G. – Corwin, 2021
Your students may not realize it, but they're already writers.

The key, of course, is practice--plus a little guidance from…

Bushnell, Cameron – Across the Disciplines, 2020
This essay argues that international teaching assistants (ITAs) bring to their writing and teaching of writing a perspective shaped by translation.

Their struggle to write across languages and cultures can…

Vaughan, Andrea – Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, 2020
Although school is only one of many places where youths write, the writing privileged in school is often upheld as standard, whereas adolescents' out-of-school writing often uses forms, styles, and topics not taught or allowed in school. Little is known about how K-12 educators can use research on out-of-school writing to inform in-school writing…
