- Roots in the Sawdust: Writing to Learn Across the Disciplines - “In this collection, editor Anne Ruggles Gere offers a response to Arthur N. Applebee's call for ‘more situations in which writing can serve as a tool for learning rather than as a means to display acquired knowledge’ (1982). Gere brings together teacher-authors from a wide variety of disciplines to detail how they have successfully used writing activities to improve their students' comprehension—without creating significant grading burdens for themselves.”
