Writing Groups: History, Theory, and Implications
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungDrawing upon previously unpublished archival materials as well as historical accounts, Gere traces the history of writing groups in America, from their origins over a century ago to their recent reappearance in the works of Macrorie, Elbow, Murray, and others. From this historical perspective Gere examines the theoretical foundations of writing groups, challenging the traditional concept of writing as an individual performance. She offers instead a broader view of authorship that includes both individual and social dimensions, with implications not only for the teaching of composition but also for theories of rhetoric and literacy.
PortraitAnne Ruggles Gere is Associate Professor of English at the University of Washington and is the author of "Writing and Learning."
