X-Series for Professional Development
The X Series for Professional Development, a new series for the professional development of both new and experienced teachers of English, including:
|New Teaching Assistants, Adjuncts, and Instructors teaching writing and/or literature|
|Writing Program Administrators interested in the creation of professional development courses or programs|
|Writing Center personnel|
|Writing Across the Curriculum personnel|
|Service Learning Personnel|
Fountainhead Press plans to publish two to three books in the series per year with the assistance of series editors Allison D. Smith and Trixie G. Smith, authors of COMPbiblio: Leaders and Influences in Composition Theory and Practice, the first book in the series.
Each of the "X" series books is extensively reviewed during the proposal process to determine whether it is suitable to be included in the Series. Once the book is selected for inclusion it continues to be rigorously reviewed during the developmental process by both our Series Editors and External Anonymous Peers within the appropriate field.
