This sequel to _What Is College-Level Writing?_ (2006) highlights the practical aspects of teaching writing. By design, the essays in this collection focus on things all English and writing teachers concern themselves with on a daily basis assignments, readings, and real student writing. The collection also seeks to extend the conversation begun in the first volume by providing in-depth analysis and discussion of assignments and student writing. The goal is to begin a process of defining college-level writing by example. Contributors include students, high school teachers, and college instructors in conversation with one another. Through this pragmatic lens, the essays in this volume address other important issues related to college-level writing, including assignment design, the AP test, the use of the five-paragraph essay, as well as issues related to L2/ESL and Generation 1.5 students.
