A special session

Speakers: David Bleich, Univ. of Rochester; Christine R. Farris, Indiana Univ., Bloomington; Keith Gilyard, Penn State Univ., University Park; Deborah H. Holdstein, Columbia Coll., IL; Staci Perryman-Clark, Western Michigan Univ.

Panelists discuss how teaching argument was a political gesture—constricting the professional standards through censorship. Our love of all language genres, our inclusion of all constituencies in society, our sense of the political functions of language have been taken out of writing pedagogy. We seek to reinstall a comprehensive view of language into the teaching of language and literature.
