Begin by reading Berlin’s piece and Fulkerson’s “Four Philosophies” as representative of Composition’s first delineations of its content and purpose as a field, especially in relationship to ideological approaches to writing instruction. In contrast, Fulkerson’s second, more recent piece, in some ways laments the social turn and the its implications for the field, while the “Critical Introduction” gives an historical overview of competing ideologies and the present state of the field. Looking at these four readings, please articulate: 1. your definition of composition studies pre and post social turn. 2. The ideologies that influence your views of writing instruction using the articles to answer these questions. Please integrate summaries and quotes from the articles listed above. The purpose here is for you to begin to recognize composition studies as both a field of pedagogical and theoretical inquiry, and, of course, for me to learn where you are beginning to situate yourself within the field and how well you comprehend the source material. This will be due (at the latest) by the next class period (Wednesday 2/8) to the blog.
