Date Issued:
2006
Summary:
Only recently have US scholars looked at the rest of the world to see how other countries deal with the writing classroom, mainly because many other countries did not have a writing program or academic writing classes. However, the formation of the European Union (EU), particularly in 1992, brought about specific political and educational integration between member countries. The formation of the EU has changed the composition of the classroom in most continental European countries. In the US, the effects of globalization in our classroom will change composition studies. Bringing in perspectives from countries that are dealing with globalization in a different manner will further the focus and research in the field. Government intervention, language barriers, student involvement, and multi-disciplinary influences continue to shape composition studies. By examining these issues in both national and international context, we can anticipate the results of a cross-national pedagogical exchange.
