Welcome to the College Section - Previous Revision

The College Section of NCTE supports the exploration of English Studies in the variety of collegiate settings. 

 The College Section of NCTE addresses the needs of college English teachers; we are teachers of composition and literature, of language and pop culture, of methods and mythology; we are instructors who teach it all--especially to undergraduates.

Our final interview is with Ellen Barton. The interview was conducted by Michelle Sharaff, a Ph.D. student at Virginia Tech. Ellen Barton is a professor of English and the Director of Composition at Wayne State University.  She has a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Northwestern University. Her research is in the area of medical discourse, discourse analysis and research methodology. We wanted to interview her and other researchers for their perspectives on the field in general and research methods/methodologies in particular.
