Calhoon-Dillahunt, Carolyn; Forrest, Dodie – Teaching English in the Two-Year College, 2013
As writing instructors, the authors spend hours "talking back" to their students through written comments on their drafts.

Mack, Nancy – Teaching English in the Two-Year College, 2013

Seessel, Jessica – Teaching English in the Two-Year College, 2013
For many writing teachers, helping students discover, explore, refine and, most importantly, inhabit their "voices" is both the teachers' greatest challenge and pleasure. Voice, they tell them, is what their writing "sounds" like when someone reads it; it is their personality on the page; it is the writer "speaking" to the reader. But what happens…
