Current Research Projects

I'm currently collaborating with university's Office of Institutional Assessment on a large-scale quantitative study examining how first-year composition students' writing changes during the time they take English 101 and 102 at USC. I'm also hard at work on a new edition of Beyond Words: Reading and Writing in a Visual Age with colleagues John Ruszkiewicz (University of Texas at Austin) and Daniel Anderson (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill). Also under contract and in progress are a co-authored book introducing non-specialists to the history of composition and rhetoric and new editions of two first-year composition handbooks.
