Ryan Weber, Review. Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research, vol. 4, no. 2, winter 2020, p. 64).
"This report positions itself well in relation to past disciplinary research and key moments in developing UR, but the book also feels like its own watershed moment for writing studies, the kind of text that will be cited for years to come."
About This Book
The Naylor Report on Undergraduate Research in Writing Studies combines scholarly research with practical advice for practitioners of undergraduate research in writing studies, including student researchers, mentors, and program administrators. Building upon the 1998 Boyer Commission Report, Reinventing Undergraduate Education, this book provides insight into the growth of undergraduate research over the last twenty years. Contributors demonstrate how undergraduate research serves students and their mentors as well as sponsoring programs, departments, and institutions. The Naylor Report also illustrates how making research central to undergraduate education helps advance the discipline.
Organized in two parts, Part I focuses on defining characteristics of undergraduate research in writing studies: mentoring, research methods, contribution to knowledge, and circulation. Part II focuses on critical issues to consider, such as access, curriculum, and institutional support.
The Naylor Report on Undergraduate Research in Writing Studies is both a toolkit and a call to action. It helps readers not only engage in undergraduate research but also develop and sustain undergraduate research efforts locally on their campuses and in their communities. The report is the product of conversations that began at the Naylor Symposium for Undergraduate Research in Writing Studies in York, Pennsylvania. It reflects the generosity of event benefactor Mr. Irv Naylor as well as participants’ shared desire to improve undergraduate research in writing studies along with prospective practitioners’ access to it.
