Information for Authors

Editor’s Introduction: Radical Reconsideration of the College English Classroom
Holly Hassel

Feature: Race Talk in the Composition Classroom: Narrative Song Lyrics as Texts for Racial Literacy

Feature: Writing as Reckoning: Composition and Collage
Daniel Collins
This collage seeks to demonstrate the ways in which composition students can benefit from practice in collage-based writing.

Feature: A Long Look at Reading in the Community College: A Longitudinal Analysis of Student Reading Experiences
Annie Del Principe and Rachel Ihara
This article presents findings from a longitudinal study of student reading experiences at a community college and concludes that, as their experiences accumulated, these students learned how to succeed in their coursework without actually reading assigned texts.

Feature: Playing by (and with) the Rules: Revision as Role-Playing Game in the Introductory Creative Writing Classroom
Sheryl Lyn Bundy
Using student poems and reflections collected over several years, the author examines the impact of a role-playing game experience on introductory creative writing students’ openness toward taking risks, revising (and improvising) playfully, and working with limitations or rules. The role-play uses Lars von Trier’s film The Five Obstructions as a model—particularly the diabolical game that unfolds between directors von Trier and Jørgen Leth—and requires students to “remake” a poem of theirs three times according to sets of rules designed specifically for them by the instructor in face-to-face meetings.
