Delivering College Composition: The Fifth Canon by Kathleen B Yancey

<p>Invention, Arrangement, Style, Memory . . . . Delivery. Of the five rhetorical canons defined by Aristotle, Delivery is the most overlooked and most frequently undertheorized. Delivery provides a lens into the ways composition curricula is designed; into the kinds of writing expected from students; and to the new electronic, physical, and curricular spaces created for composing. <i>Delivering College Composition</i>addresses the need for a more rigorous examination of Delivery, arguing that composition is increasingly being delivered in different ways by different individuals for different purposes within different contexts-yet retaining its identity as well.</p> <p>Kathleen Yancey asks a number of probing questions about the current state of writing instruction:</p> <div style=margin-left: 2em><i>What is college composition?<br /> What does it look like, given the multiple ways it is delivered?<br /> What features do courses share?<br /> Is there a common understanding about their purposes, methods, and outcomes?<br /> How do multiple delivery systems alter and redefine this thing we call college composition?<br /> How does delivery matter?</i></div> From a research university, to a private college, to an historically black school, to a cyberschool, to advanced placement English classes, <i>Delivering College Composition</i>gives answers to these questions through in-depth analyses from more than a dozen teaching environments. <p>Focusing strongly on practice and its theoretical implications, Yancey and company provide a frank and informative thick description&qupt; of classroom instruction, and in the process offer new definitions of what composition means in the present-and what it might look like in the future.</p
