What Matters Who Writes? What Matters Who Responds?

Andrea Lunsford, Rebecca Rickly, Michael Salvo, and Susan West

Peter Elbow has done a lot to help us understand the various functions we perform when we read student work. And in spite of the fact that I believe all writing is, to some degree, collaborative, and while I actively collaborate with students when they invite me to,  I have become increasingly uncomfortable about appropriating student texts by scrawling comments all over them, changing words, and so on. I suspect that this form of copious response and appropriation  is connected in some ways to the "gatekeeper" English studies has always been seen to be.
