What People Are Saying

"Some people within the United States seem caught up in extreme fear, expressed in isolationism, Islamophobia, and other bigotries. Certainly there is call for caution and for vigilance, but extremists don't particularly like these words: they want to ban Muslims from entering the United States, to put certain people in internment camps, to refuse to accept any refugees from Syria and other countries. It's a very dispiriting time, here at the end of 2015, and it's hard to find examples of people thinking clearly and cogently, which is one reason I have been so drawn to the work of this volume that is dedicated to developing young people's abilities to think clearly and cogently—and creatively and ethically as well." —Andrea A. Lunsford (from the Afterword)


The Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing: Scholarship and Applications illustrates the widespread applications of the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing, especially the eight habits of mind, in helping students to be successful not only in postsecondary writing courses but also in four arenas of life: academic, professional, civic, and personal. Chapters focus on a wide range of research, theory, and practice related to using the habits of mind and other features of the Framework to enhance teaching and learning.

With a Foreword by Peggy O'Neill, Linda Adler-Kassner, Cathy Fleischer, and Anne-Marie Hall and an Afterword by Andrea A. Lunsford.
