In this work Jeffrey L. Hoogeveen reveals how student desires and voice are sometimes overwritten by academic discourses, demonstrating how these discourses constitute and perpetuate existing power structures. The classroom discussion is an important teaching and learning tool in composition and Hoogeveen offers the composition teacher some enlightening food for thought, opening a dialogue in the recent history of composition. His disruption to that totalizing narrative is a challenge to the status quo, specifically to those power structures that dislocate student desire and subsume the fundamental aspect of the person that distinguishes good writing -the voice of change.
