Sample text

They need to move beyond a reliance on the graphic discontinuities – the spaces between words that mask more serious disturbances that compromise a draft.

I want to use new media software to encourage students to place their own senses, all of them, in the service of reading and in the service of writing.

Literature, as such, is increasingly immaterial to composition training. While a short story or poem may appear as reading in a composition course, the purpose of composition – to sharpen students’ argumentative skills – seems more and more to exclude analytic techniques specific to particular disciplines, English or otherwise.
