Richard C. Raymond. When Writing Professors Teach Literature: Shaping Questions, Finding Answers, Effecting Change.

Raymond, Richard C. "When Writing Professors Teach Literature: Shaping Questions, Finding Answers, Effecting Change." CCC 59.3 (2008): 473-502.


The article explores writing-centered pedagogies that deepen student learning in literature survey courses. More broadly, the article also responds to Richard Fulkerson and Maureen Daly Goggin, who challenge professors of English studies to find disciplinary unity within the diverse epistemologies of rhetoric.
