Professional Issues

10-second review: The purpose of this reviewed book is to pose questions about the topic of collaborative writing.

Title: Review of New Visions of Collaborative Writing. Ed. Janis Forman (Portsmouth, NH: Boynton Cook, 1992, 200 pages). Reviewed by AM Gilliam. College Composition and Communication (May 1993), 258-259. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Summary: “As Forman announces at the outset, ‘This volume poses questions rather than provides answers; its aim is to keep the conversations about collaboration ‘in motion.’ ”

Comment: Refreshing that a book on issues in English education wants to question rather than pontificate. As was the case with "whole language." RayS.
