Professor Denise Comer

Teaching, like writing, is a collaborative process. The ideas you see in this course bear
the influence of many past and current colleagues, as well as the many gifted scholars
in writing studies who publish their arguments and ideas. I am especially grateful to
faculty at the University of South Carolina Department of English 1995-2000, faculty at
Chico State University Department of English, 1998-99, and faculty in the Thompson
Writing Program at Duke University, 2000-2013. Wherever I have drawn more specifically
from a colleague or text, I have done my best to acknowledge it directly. If you see an
acknowledgement I may have inadvertently overlooked, please post it to the Class
Materials forum so I can review it and, if needed, make the correction. Some of the
specific strategies for actively reading Coyle emerge from the influence of Kenneth
Burke, and from the following articles, provided to me by my friend and colleague,
Parag Budhecha:
