From the Editor: The (Continuing) Wisdom of Students

African American Language, Rhetoric, and Students’ Writing: New Directions for SRTOL
Staci M. Perryman-Clark
Abstract: This article offers a case study of how three African American students enrolled in a first-year writing course employ Ebonics-based phonological and syntactical patterns across writing assignments, including those that also require students to compose multigenre essays.

Motivation and Connection: Teaching Reading (and Writing) in the Composition Classroom
Michael Bunn
Abstract: Drawing on qualitative research conducted at the University of Michigan, this article examines the extent to which composition instructors theorize and teach reading-writing connections and argues that explicitly teaching reading-writing connections may increase student motivation to complete assigned reading. The article also discusses using model texts as an effective means of teaching those connections.

Beyond Standards: Disciplinary and National Perspectives on Habits of Mind
Kristine Johnson
Abstract: This article situates the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing in current educational policy and in the discipline of rhetoric and composition. It argues the Framework positions the discipline to address gaps in American education by reinvigorating historical and traditional frames for writing instruction—ancient rhetoric and the liberal arts tradition. Although this realignment challenges technocratic assumptions about education, it raises pragmatic and ethical questions about assessing habits of mind that rhetoric and composition must consider.
