Adler-Kassner: If I had to select only one essay for a writing teacher to read, I think it would be Mike Rose and Linda Hall's "That Wooden Shack Place." It's an old essay in some ways, but I think the issues it raises are so salient because it's about listening to students and trusting students and really rethinking our positions as teachers.
Powell: If I had to pick one essay for a writing teacher to read, it would be Jackie Royster's "When the First Voice You Hear is Not Your Own."
Bartholomae: "The Arts of the Contact Zone."
Bizzell: Ken Bruffee's essay "Collaborative Learning and the Conversation of Mankind."
Lunsford: Geneva Smitherman's history of CCCC's engagement with students' right to their own language.
Glenn: Lloyd Bitzer's "The Rhetorical Situation."
Palmquist: Lloyd Bitzer's "Rhetorical Situation."
D. McQuade: Nancy Sommers' essay on revision.
Reynolds: Nancy Sommers' "Responding to Student Writing."
Sommers: I'd probably pick David Bartholomae's "Inventing the University."
Sanchez: David Bartholomae's "Inventing the University."
Schilb: "Inventing the University."
Lindemann: "Inventing the University."
