“Engaging Writers with Multigenre Research Projects is pedagogically groundbreaking, signaling a critical and principled shift in our understanding of what it means to teach research in the writing classroom. Mack’s approach heralds the beginning of a new era, one that insists on relevancy as the cornerstone to effective teaching and a deep acknowledgment that students bring with them to the classroom valuable resources, experiences, and well-developed literacies—the necessary context for engaging in meaningful research and substantive writing.”
