The January 2016 issue of College English deals with new approaches to language difference in writing classrooms and in culture. John Trimbur “trace[s] a branch of translingualism to its source.”
From the new issue of College English: Jenny Rice argues for a new understanding of “expertise”
to engage writing students in problem-posing and solving.
