In this ethnographic study of the teaching of writing, Karen Surman Paley reveals the social significance of first-person writing and the limitations of a popular taxonomy of composition studies. Paley looks critically at the way social constructionists have created an a€œOthera€ in the field of composition studies and named it a€œexpressivist.a€ Paley demonstrates the complexity of approaches to teaching writing through an ethnographic study of two composition faculty at Boston College, a program that some would say is a€œexpressivist.a€ She prompts her colleagues to consider how family experiences shape the way students feel about and treat people of races, religions, genders, and sexual preferences other than their own. Finally, she suggests to the field of composition that practitioners spend less time shoring up taxonomies of the field and more time sharing pedagogies.discussing here is how to prevent such an essay from being written in the first place.aquot; Janet chose as the subject of her personal narrative a rupture that had occurred in her family. She had been very close to her paternal grandmother. ... However, after the semester was over and I began to write up my data, I felt troubled by the production of the text and by the way Janet negotiated revision with Helena.
