A jump start to teaching composition

Combining sound theory with rich hands-on activities, Informed Choices: A Guide for Teachers of College Writing is built on the premise that teaching writing is not about mastering a single best practice, but instead requires conscious reflection, as well as responsiveness to inevitable tradeoffs and paradoxes. Ideal for new TAs and experienced professors alike, it helps teachers navigate complex choices about course design, assessment, even professional growth--all within the context of trends in the field, institutional expectations, and their evolving pedagogical philosophies.
