A Guide to Composition Pedagogies is the essential bibliographic guide written for newcomers to the field. Since our field has evolved quite a lot over the last decade, this long-awaited second edition contains many important changes, additions, and updates. At the same time, the practical organization and educational intent of the book have remained the same: The pedagogies themselves are categories commonly recognized in the disciplinary scholarship, and as with the first edition, each essay introduces the most important work in the field on the pedagogy, while attempting to offer readers a sense of the spirit of the approach, often through personal teaching narratives. t In short, this best-selling bibliographic guide familiarizes writing instructors with the current topography of Composition Studies and directs them to the best books and articles for further exploration. For this second edition, each author discusses some of the implications of technology for each pedagogy. In addition, the essays now focus more on practice and slightly less on theory.

"A Guide to Composition Pedagogies provides students with the theoretical framework that they will need to understand teaching composition and to develop their own pedagogical concepts. More importantly, it provides realistic, applicable examples of what can and does happen in composition classrooms and how instructors of composition shape students' college experiences as writers and thinkers."--Carol Zitzer-Comfort, California State University-Long Beach
"The second edition of A Guide offers a breadth of coverage, range of perspectives, and conciseness not found in many texts that help new and seasonsed composition teachers and scholars remain current on the climate of composition studies."--The Journal of Teaching Writing
