Published! Keith Hoeller, Marcie Sims and Julie Moore published books this winter
Crossroads, second edition, by Julie Moore; Equality for Contingent Faculty: Overcoming the Two-Tier System, edited by Keith Hoeller; and The Write Stuff: Thinking Through Essays, third edition by Marcie Sims were all published this winter by Green River faculty members.
English instructor Julie Moore published the second edition of Crossroads: Integrated Reading and Writing along with Pam Dusenberry this past February.
Crossroads is an integrated reading/writing pre-college textbook that guides students through the full processes of reading and writing, demonstrating how they are connected to and build on one another.
"I hope this book helps to empower students to reach towards their goal of finishing their college degree by building foundational skills of reading and writing so necessary to accomplishing that goal," said Moore of her work.
Philosophy instructor Keith Hoeller published his second book, Equality for Contingent Faculty: Overcoming the Two-Tier System, also in February.
Hoeller's own writings and the writings of his fellow academics provide a detailed cross-section of the problems with the adjunct faculty system bookended by real-life success stories of reformed systems. The work also presents tangible suggestions for reform, such as adjunct faculty unions and collective bargaining.
"I am trying to raise this idea that we should be asking for equality, not incremental change," said Hoeller. "By setting the bar on equality, we've given adjuncts nationwide a goal to shoot for."
English instructor Marcie Sims published the third edition of The Write Stuff, Thinking Through Essays this past January.
The book assists writers in developing the skills needed to clearly and logically express themselves in writing. It is an all-in-one textbook including writing instruction, a grammar handbook, MLA/APA guidelines and a selection of readings. The text is used by pre-college and college level composition courses.
"I am very excited that my textbook is in its third edition," said Sims. "This new edition is the best one yet!"
