About this product
- DescriptionIn Mutuality in the Rhetoric and Composition Classroom, David L. Wallace and Helen Rothschild Ewald point out the centrality of rhetoric in the academy, asserting the intimate connection between language and kwledge making. They also stress the need for a change in the roles of teachers and students in today s classroom. Their goal is mutuality, a sharing of authority among teachers and students in the classroom that would allow everyone an equal voice in the communication of ideas.Arguing that the impetus to empower students by engaging them in liberatory and emancipatory pedagogies is simply t eugh, Wallace and Ewald seek to help readers identify, theorize, and work through problems faced by teachers who already value alternative approaches but who are struggling to implement them in the classroom. It is t the teacher s job merely to convey a received body of kwledge, r is kwledge a prepackaged commodity to be delivered by the teacher. It is constituted in the classroom through the dialogic interaction between teachers and students alike. Wallace and Ewald see mutuality as potentially transformative, but they do t believe that the nature or that transformation can be designated in advance. Rather it is located in the interaction between teachers and students. Wallace and Ewald look at how the transformative tion of mutuality can be effected in classrooms in three important ways: reconstituting classroom speech genres, redesigning the architecture of rhetoric and writing courses, and valuing students interpretive agency in classroom discourse. Mutuality in alternative pedagogy, they assert, is neither a single approach r a specific set of valued practices; it is a continuous collaboration between teachers and students.
