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. But how do student writers receive their comments, and what do they "do" with this feedback? Teachers invest so much time and energy in their responses to papers.

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…

Friesen, Helen Lepp – Teaching English in the Two-Year College, 2012
To writing, painting, drawing, and photography as artistic media, the author would like to add teaching as a creative endeavor as well.
