Example text

But what next? Our field still has not produced a comprehensive series of texts that will help us advance in our research capabilities beyond a fairly modest level. G E O R G E C A M P B E L L A N D T H E N AT U R E O F E V I D E N C E The current-traditional rhetoric that flourished in the nineteenth century, supposedly defining “truth” as external, objective, and empirically verifiable, has been displaced in favor of other theories of composition that view “truth” either as residing “within” (as internal and subjective), or as stemming from, the transaction between the external and the internal (as now evident in the popularity of socialconstructionist theories).

The modern version of composition studies—though grounded in a long-standing rhetorical tradition—emerged amid such chaos—in the context of a rupture, a transformation, a mutation, if you will, called the “literacy crisis” of the mid-1970s (Harkin & Schilb, 1991). Sommers (1979) had argued that our field lacked an articulated theory at that time because of the chaotic response to the literacy crisis, a response that resulted in numerous teaching methods developed without the support of a theory of how students learn.

Your friends, however, laugh at your superstition. “Prove it,” they say. Research in Composition So we need to design an experiment to see if your red bowling ball is as lucky as you think. We’ll take your old green ball, your new red ball, and we’ll steal that pretty purple one with glitter (also of equal size and weight) from the next lane. We’ll let the bartender bowl in one lane, trying each color, testing your prediction that the red ball is luckiest. ) We’ll keep score, of course, to see which color does the best.
