Part 4 explores eleven genres, discussing the ways that scholars define or draw boundaries around each genre and offering insight into the value of the genre to illuminate the possibilities of writing in that genre.

Discussion Questions

  1. What are your existing conceptions of the eleven genres we discuss in this section of the book? How might considering them within the book’s framework—writing as creating and contributing to scholarly conversations about learning and teaching, writing as fostering identities and clarifying values, and writing as a medium for ongoing learning—inform your understanding?
  2. What is your sense of the current conventions and affordances of each of these genres, and how can any or all of them be expanded to invite and affirm a greater diversity of scholars of learning and teaching?
