Writing in Transit

Denise Comer


Fountainhead Press

Ideal for both first-year composition and interdisciplinary writing courses, Comer offers a two-tiered approach to multidisciplinary writing. She presents strategies and instruction for navigating the purposes for writing through writing transfer, which encourages students to reflect on what they learn in one context about writing, and about themselves as learners and writers, and then apply, extend, reject, or otherwise modify this knowledge for other disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and trans-disciplinary contexts. Comer teaches students how to build practical bridges between disciplines’ discourse conventions by learning about the research and writing process.
