Mr. Joshua Kutney, Instructor of Writing, began at Lakeland in 2005. His current research concerns the ways students transfer their knowledge of writing to new contexts and the role regression plays in writing development. Kutney's work on these issues has appeared in College Composition and Communication, The International Journal of Learning, and Wisconsin English Journal. Kutney is also actively involved with College Readiness 21, a program that helps high school students prepare for college. In his spare time, Kutney enjoys reading, playing basketball, and spending time with his wife and sons.
