Overview

Christopher Schroeder spends almost no time disputing David Bartholomae's famous essay, but throughout ReInventing the University, he elaborates an approach to teaching composition that is at odds with the tradition that essay has come to represent.

On the other hand, his approach is also at odds with elements of the pedagogies of such theorists as Berlin, Bizzell, and Shor. Schroeder argues that, for students, postmodern instability in literacy and meaning has become a question of the legitimacy of current discourse of education. Schroeder is committed, then, to constructing literacies jointly with students and by so doing to bringing students to engage more deeply with education and society.

Editorial Reviews

Schroeder (Writing Across the Curriculum program, Long Island U.-C.W. Post campus) critiques the current "crisis in literacy" as reflecting cultural issues more than deficits in literacy skills. He dissects the context of conventional academic literacies in US higher education via an analysis of English studies' textbooks; and presents students' and colleagues' narratives on his constructed literacies approach.
