Berthoff, Ann E. “Rhetoric as hermeneutic.” College composition and communication 42.3 (1991): 279-287.
20: “1. Invention”
21: “Writers who learn how to let the what help them discover the how are learning the use of limits.” ***Here Berthoff writes of “constraints” that work when writers consider audience (“What does the reader need to know?”) and the form (genre in this passage). Constraints here are means of invention, “form” as heuristic (and situation as heuristic). IN order for this to work, students need to develop awareness of audience and form (different from discourse community? genre expectations? )
18: ” …to teach composition is to teach the process of making meaning.” **Which is NOT the “writing process”…!!! Why does this get so screwed up? As though “process” means only one thing… Must look at “process” again in Harris. He’s wrong to say her work doesn’t enter into discussions “in these terms” when one of those terms is “process.” It does! It marks the potential for a profoundly different (and revolutionary) conception of “process.”
