This chapter is from the book Composition and Resistance, which is meant for anybody in the composition business-teachers of composition theory and writing intensive courses in both college and high school, teacher educators, teachers of rhetoric, and graduate students. Composition and Resistance is a moving orchestration of our profession's deepest concerns about the economic, social, political, and practical aspects of teaching writing-matters that touch us all, both day-to-day and over professional lifetimes.

This is an action-oriented text, emphatic in its condemnation of unexamined persuasions, injudicious policies, uninformed practices, and stodginess; and liberatory in its arguments for change.
