Since the best-selling first edition, The Scott Foresman Handbookhas proven again and again that a comprehensive handbook can be easy, practical even fun to use. Each new edition has proveded complete, up-to-date material on writing processes, argumentation, style, grammar, mechanics, and punctuation, in friendly and accessible language. Yet, new ground has been broken as the authors have anticipated new developments in writing influenced by new theories and new technologies. Earlier editions have led the field in addressing civic literacy, visual literacy, online research, service learning and other emerging trends. As a result of this forward-looking philosophy, writers using The Scott Foresman Handbook know what college writing means today and what writers will need to know tomorrow.

In a book that itself exemplifies the dialogic scholarship it proposes, Kay Halasek reconceives composition studies from a Bakhtinian perspective, focusing on both the discipline's theoretical assumptions and its pedagogies. Framing her discussions at every level of the disciplinetheoretical, historical, pedagogicalHalasek provides an overview of portions of the Bakhtinian canon relevant to composition studies, explores the implications of Mikhail Bakhtin's work in the teaching of writing and for current debates about the role of theory in composition studies, and provides a model of scholarship that strives to maintain dialogic balance between practice and theory, between composition studies and Bakhtinian thought. Halasek's study ranges broadly across the field of composition, painting in wide strokes a new picture of the discipline, focusing on the finer details of the rhetorical situation, and teasing out the implications of Bakhtinian thought for classroom practice by examining the nature of critical reading and writing, the efficacy and ethics of academic discourse, student resistance, and critical and conflict pedagogy. The book ends by setting out a pedagogy of possibility, what Halasek terms elsewhere a "post-critical pedagogy" that redefines and redirects current discussions of home versus academic literacies and discourses.
