What Matters Who Writes?
What Matters Who Responds?

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.
