Bishop, Wendy.  "Co-authoring Changes the Writing Classroom: Students Authorizing the Self, Authoring Together."  Composition Studies/FEN  (23.1): 54-62. 

Based on her work in a variety of writing classrooms, Bishop advocates collaborative writing projects.  She examines the way such projects raise issues of reading and evaluation (for both teacher and students) and then offers examples of classroom activities, including autobiographical collages, drive word and co-authored poetry projects, illustrated with student work.
