Summary
"In Practicing Writing, Thomas Masters brings to life the voices of students and teachers that are not usually acknowledged in theoretical studies, and places their words, actions, and ideas at the very center of composition history." "Masters examines the pivotal postwar era - from the return of the GIs in 1947 in the establishment of composition as a separate discipline in 1963. He draws on archives in three midwestern colleges where meticulous records have been preserved." "The result is a reexamination of first-year composition that illuminates the critical role this course plays within the university and the reasons for its durability."--BOOK JACKET
