Brunk-Chavez, Beth; Pigg, Stacey; Moore, Jessie; Rosinski, Paula; Grabill, Jeffrey T. – Composition Studies, 2018
To speak to diverse audiences about how people learn to write and how writing works inside and outside the academy, we must conduct research across geographical, institutional, and cultural contexts as well as research that enables comparison when appropriate.

However, education research has shown that there is potential for bias in SETs, especially based on instructor variables.

Accardi, Steven – Composition Studies, 2017
Penn State Hazleton sits at the very edge of town, on the top of a large hill, literally, as far removed from Hazleton as it possibly can be. Only a handful of professors actually live in Hazleton, and nearly all students return home for the weekend. Compared with the main campus, the student population at Penn State Hazleton is quite diverse.…

Martorana, Christine – Composition Studies, 2017
Researchers in the field of composition studies have spent a great deal of time, energy, and scholarship proposing and debating strategies for collaborative pedagogy.

Over the last decade celebrations of student writing (CSWs) have been instituted at universities across the nation as a public way to celebrate students' voices, identities, and literacies.

Kurtyka, Faith M. – Composition Studies, 2017
This article examines the rhetoric of the conversion narratives told by a group of women joining a new social sorority on campus.

My close analysis of…

Instead, writers compose by juxtaposing personal writing with research around some item or issue that might seem insignificant or minor. A minor exigence--in this case, eating and cooking falafel--can be explored so that a larger…
