About This Book
A Rhetoric for Writing Program Administrators (2nd Edition) presents the major issues and questions in the field of writing program administration. The collection provides aspiring, new, and seasoned WPAs with the theoretical lenses, terminologies, historical contexts, and research they need to understand the nature, history, and complexities of their intellectual and administrative work. Each of the thirty-six chapters asks a direct question about an issue WPAs will need or want to answer, including such concepts as institutional politics, retention, technology, WAC, placement, ESL, general education, transfer, and many more. Its forty-four contributors are experienced writing program and writing center administrators who, in a diverse range of voices, map the discipline and help readers find their own ways to identify and solve problems at home institutions. Now in its Second Edition, A Rhetoric for Writing Program Administrators, includes new essays on technology, threshold concepts, retention, and independent writing programs. Many other essays have been updated to reflect emergent concerns in higher education and WPA work.
