Beschreibung"Composition and the Rhetoric of Science: Engaging the Dominant Discourse" calls for instructors of first-year writing courses to employ primary scientific discourse in their teaching and for rhetoricians of science to think about teaching scientific discourse as a literacy skill.
PortraitMichael J. Zerbe, an assistant professor of English and humanities at York College of Pennsylvania, has published articles in the Journal of Technical Writing and Communication and in several edited collections. He formerly was a consulting editor and Health Communications Fellow at the National Cancer Institute.
Pressestimmen"In a direct, confident, clear style, Zerbe argues the field of rhetoric and composition has ignored the dominant rhetoric of our time - scientific discourse - and compels the profession to rethink what we are focusing on and why. Blending theory, pedagogy, and concrete instructional discussions, Composition and the Rhetoric of Science goes beyond the 'what' and 'why' to illustrate 'how' instruction in the rhetoric of science can become part of our composition classrooms." - Tim Peeples, Elon University"
