Editorial Reviews


“This is both a first-class comparative study of upper-level college writing and a powerful argument for a richer, more demanding approach to writing assignments across the curriculum. Foster is a strong advocate for demanding that students write ‘transformatively as knowledge makers’ from within their chosen discipline. This is a fascinating book and the beginning, I hope, of many more comparative studies.”—John Brereton, The Boston Athenaeum

 “A noteworthy study for our profession, Writing with Authority will inspire some important rethinking—among teachers of writing on their instructional practices, among discipline-based faculty on their orientations to socializing students into their disciplinary discourses, and among writing program administrators on constructing suitable institutional policies. This text will encourage teachers to compare their writing pedagogies with those in other countries to develop a critical perspective on composition.”—A. Suresh Canagarajah, City University of New York
