Cavazos, Alyssa G. – Composition Studies, 2019
First-Year Writing (fyw) courses are ideal writing spaces where students' diverse identities and language resources can flourish for specific rhetorical purposes.

Rifenburg, J. Michael – Composition Studies, 2019
A chief aim of the U.S. Army is ensuring warfighting function.

King, Carolyne M. – Composition Studies, 2019
While composition research recognizes the importance of the body and bodily knowledge, literacy instruction, especially as relayed in writing textbooks, often disembodies the material practice of reading. This move, in turn, contributes to normative assumptions about students' corporeal reading experiences. Drawing together scholarship on…

Lamos, Steve – Composition Studies, 2019
I investigate here the personal and professional significance of "literate dwelling"--that is, processes whereby individuals learn to acquire and use literacy within initial spaces and times of comfort in order both to move beyond such comfort and to promote productive change in the larger world. Such significance became especially clear…

Voss, Julia – Composition Studies, 2018
Collaborative group work is common in writing classrooms, especially ones assigning digital projects.

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. Large-scale empirical research is useful for both of these moves; however, we must…

However, education research has shown that there is potential for bias in SETs, especially based on instructor variables. Aside from Amy Dayton's 2015 work on assessment that advises using SETs only in concert with other measures, English studies scholars have…
