Acknowledging that many composition courses are taught by graduate students, In Our Own Voice offers a selection of articles about teaching first year writing by graduate students. By reading a variety of perspectives about the realities and experiences of teaching writing, graduate students become better prepared for the composition classroom. The collection attempts to strike a balance between the theoretical and practical issues composition teachers face, and functions as a resource for pedagogical theories and practical ideas while at the same time problematizing traditional and currently held beliefs and definitions. The essays are arranged according to topic and attempt to speak to each other, while acknowledging that there is no right or wrong method when it comes to teaching. For anyone interested in the teaching of writing.
