Flynn, Elizabeth A. “Rescuing Postmodernism.” CCC 48.4 (1997): 540-555.
Flynn analyzes three examples of technical communication research within composition research to illustrate the differences between modern, antimodern, and postmodern critical traditions. She argues that defenders of modern objectivism confuse postmodern critics as subjectivists, leading to erroneous assumptions of being opposed to objectivity as researchers, writers, and teachers. She concludes that both antimodernist and postmodernist critiques are necessary, if different, antidotes for the unchecked, considerable authority of modernist science.

Foster uses his expressivist writing course to study the effects of reading tasks on students’ attitudes and writing practices. His findings contradict usual modeling and structure appropriation rationales for using readings in writing curriculum, but highlight other, more provocative connections to students’ attitudes about themselves as readers and writers. Foster believes these attitudes link more to the pedagogical and instructional context of the academic writing tasks than to the pedagogical format of the readings themselves.

Kates analyzes Mary Augusta Jordon’s Correct Writing and Speaking for its subversively feminist stance on language, identity, and gender. Used as rhetorical instruction outside of academic settings, Jordon’s textbook challenges received conceptions of language use by focusing on alternative conventions and modes of communication, and the negotiated agreements on language use evidenced in the history and evolution of English. Kates juxtaposes Jordon’s text with texts of her early twentieth-century male contemporaries, Genung, Hill, and Wendall.

Working with phonological transfers and specific discourse features in African American and Creole-Caribbean English dialects, Coleman posits the need to broaden literacy instruction to account for the home and community-based oral practices that shape these dialectic Englishes. He concludes that error in developmental student writing is best seen through interlanguage/interdialect theories as “growth errors,” and that more research is needed to understand the differences between speech and writing transfers.

Using the 1979 Ann Arbor “Black English” court case, Ball and Lardner examine the limitations and benefits of three “teacher knowledge” constructs: teacher as technician, teacher knowledge as lore, and teacher efficacy through reflective practice. They analyses these for their ability to aid or inhibit African American students’ learning, and suggest that teachers shift their predispositions toward low expectation by recognizing, utilizing and building on the strengths of their students’ African American English.
