The Post-Process Theory of Composition
« on: March 10, 2016, 05:01:43 PM »

I found this article that I think is pretty interesting about the post-process theory and what lessons we may take to "create a practical pedagogy out of the theoretical body of knowledge called 'post-process theory.'" The article deals with synthesizing the practical demands of a classroom with the lofty and sometimes seemingly unattainable goal of post-process theory to do away with teaching certain patterns to students.
I especially enjoyed reading the part where Heard wrote about his experience that making comments and being an attentive reader/grader during the process can really influence a student positively. He characterized the process as not just focused on the writer, but as a problem solving exercise that takes place as a dialogue between teacher and student.
There are lots of interesting things in the paper and I would recommend it to anyone interested in this topic!
Here is the link where I found the article, and I have also attached a pdf of that article in this post.
