Reimagining environmental history : ecological memory in the wake of landscape change by Christian Knoeller( Book )
3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
"Christian Knoeller presents a radical reinterpretation of environmental history set in the heartland of America. In an excellent model of narrative-based scholarship, this book dynamically reimagines American environmentalism across generations of writers, artists, and scientists. Knoeller starts out with Audubon, and cites Thoreau's journals in the 1850s as he assesses an early 17th century account of New England's natural resources by William Wood, showing the epic decline in game and bird populations in Concord. This reading of environmental history is replicated throughout with a gallery of novelists, poets, essayists, and other commentators as they explore ecological memory and environmental destruction. In apt discussions of Matthiessen, Lopez, Wendell Berry, William Stafford and many others, Knoeller offers vibrant insights into literary history. He also cites his own memoir of perpetual development on his family's farm in Indiana, enriching the scholarship and making an urgent plea for the healing aesthetics of the imagination. Reading across centuries and genres, Knoeller gives us a vibrant new appraisal of Midwestern/North American interior literary traditions and makes clear how vital environmental writing is to this region. To date, no one has written such an eloquent and comprehensive cross-genre analysis of Midwestern environmental literature"--

Re-Negotiating Authority in Composition: Student-Led Discussions and the Interpretation of Text by Christian Knoeller( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Few empirical studies have focused on how composition students draw on classroom interactions to develop as writers. For instance, when students disagree fundamentally in their interpretations of what they have read, how are the range of voices reflected in their subsequent writing? The student-led format for discussions proves conducive to participation with often more than 90% of students speaking during such sessions. Case studies: (1) refute the assumption that a student has to participate in classroom discussions to benefit from them as a writer; (2) lead students to accept the idea that multiple interpretations of texts are permissible; (3) help students recognize that classroom diversity leads to productive difference of perspective; (4) point out that the essential ingredients of mutual respect and willingness to listen in a discussion can influence students to write papers that are springboards for introducing topics and raising questions during discussions; and (5) help students understand that both discussing and writing are occasions for rethinking. The interaction of oral and written language is underscored by the wide array of ways students draw upon each other's words and ideas when they are writing about books. Student-led discussions allow renegotiation of authority in the classroom with the aim of allowing students to effectively (and independently) engage each other and the text. Above all, students themselves view student-led discussions of literature as a welcome alternative to school-as-usual--one that transforms how they view themselves as readers talking and writing about texts.
