Short Description: 
In this study, we examine how a professional science news editor and high school teachers respond to student writing in order to understand the values and priorities each bring to bear on student work. These questions guided our work: • How do teachers respond to authentic genres in content-area classes? • How does teacher response compare to the responses of a professional editor?
