Berlin here continues his unique history of American college comshy;position begun in hisWriting Instruction in Nineteenth-Century Colleges(1984), turning now to the twentieth century. nbsp; In discussing the variety of rhetorics that have been used in writshy;ing classrooms Berlin introduces a taxonomy made up of three cateshy;gories: objective rhetorics, subjective rhetorics, and transactional rhetorics, which are distinguished by the epistemology on which each is based. He makes clear that these categories are not tied to a chronology but instead are to be found in the English department in one form or another during each decade of the century. nbsp; His historical treatment includes an examination of the formation of the English department, the founding of the NCTE and its role in writing instruction, the training of teachers of writing, the effects of progressive education on writing instruction, the General Education Movement, the appearance of the CCCC, the impact of Sputnik, and today’s “literacy crisis.”

James A. Berlin began his teaching career in elementary schools in Flint and Detroit, Michigan. After earning a Ph.D. in Victorian literature at the University of Michigan, he became an assistant professor of composition at Wichita State University. While there, he also served as first Director of the Kansas Writing Project, an affiliate of the National Writing Project. He next taught at the University of Cincinnati, where he was Director of Freshman English. Since 1987, he has been Professor of English at Purdue University.
