Walls with a Word Count: The Textrooms of the Extracurriculum
Alexandria Peary
Abstract: This article examines text-based locations (textrooms) as a third strand of the extracurriculum of composition. Through a diachronic analysis, I examine the nineteenth-century periodical Godey’s Lady’s Book and three twenty-first-century blogs as coauthored classrooms or powerful sites of women’s informal writing education.

Daughters of the Seminaries: Re-landscaping History through the Composition Courses at the Cherokee National Female Seminary
Emily Legg
Abstract: Challenging histories of male-dominated composition instruction during the nineteenth century, this article recovers composition practices at the Cherokee National Female Seminary, locating the practices at the intersections of gender, race, and colonization. Through Indigenous storytelling and archival research methods, the author asserts that our cultural locations landscape our writing histories.

Here They Do This, There They Do That: Latinas/Latinos Writing across Institutions
Todd Ruecker
Abstract: Reporting on a year-and-a-half-long study of Latina/Latino multilingual students transitioning from high school to a community college or university on the US-Mexico border, this article explores how writing instruction was shaped across the three institutional locations by a variety of internal and external forces such as standardized testing pressures, resource disparities, and individual instructors. In concluding comments, the author suggests ways for composition teachers, researchers, and administrators to build connections between different locations of writing and facilitate student transitions between institutions.

Locating the Terms of Engagement: Shared Language Development in Secondary to Postsecondary Writing Transitions
Mark A. Hannah and Christina Saidy
Abstract: This article explores shared language development in secondary to postsecondary transitions. Based on survey findings of secondary students, the authors advocate using a shared language corpus to access and collect student and instructor language about writing to smooth secondary to postsecondary transitions and transitions beyond the FYC classroom.

Mapping the Methods of Composition/Rhetoric Dissertations: A “Landscape Plotted and Pieced”
Benjamin Miller
Abstract: What methods do graduate students take up for their dissertation projects? This article shares findings from distant reading of 2,711 abstracts, suggesting that humanist approaches predominate within the Consortium of Doctoral Programs in Rhetoric and Composition, but not without some methodological pluralism. A large number of studies outside the consortium are also considered.
