"University classrooms are increasingly in crisis though popular demands for accountability grow more insistent, no one seems to know what our teaching should seek to achieve. This book traces how we arrived at our current impasse, and it uses Lacan's theory of the four discourses to chart a path forward via an analysis of the freshman writing class. How did we forfeit a meaningful set of goals for our teaching? T. R. Johnson suggests that, by the 1960s, the work of Bergson and Piaget had led us to see student growth as a journey into more and more abstract thought, a journey that will happen naturally if the teacher knows how to stay out of the way. Since the 1960s, we've come to see development, in turn, only as a vague initiation into the academic community. This book, however, offers an alternative tradition, one rooted in Vygotsky and the feminist movement, that defines the developing student writer in terms of a complex, intersubjective ecology, and then, through these precedents, proposes a fully psychoanalytic model of student development. To illustrate his practical use of the four discourses, Johnson draws on a wide array of concepts and a colorful set of examples, including Franz Kafka, Keith Richards, David Foster Wallace, Hannah Arendt, and many others."--Page [4] of cover.

The lure of literacy : a critical reception of the compulsory composition debate
Harker, Michael, 1976-
Albany, NY : State University of New York Press, [2015]
The lure of literacy -- The Sphinx riddle of freshman English: examining continuities of literacy in the great debate -- Recovering the reformists: articulating the educational reforms of compulsory composition -- In this spirit: the rhetoric of referencing a current and traditional complaint -- "What should colleges teach?: a proposal for a compulsory curriculum in first-year literacy studies.

The Lure of Literacy" promises to transcend the stale and unproductive debate on freshman composition that has gripped English studies for more than a century. It is the first book to chart the origin of the discussion from the early twentieth century to the advent of the New Literacy Studies. Michael Harker recontextualizes proposals to abolish compulsory composition and reimagines pedagogical conditions in English studies in order to present a different model for first-year writing. This new model for compulsory composition programs focuses on students attitudes about composition and interrogates the very idea of literacy itself.
