Through focus groups, interviews, and questionnaires, 15 international TAs discussed fallacies about composition. Using Legitimation Code Theory, we argue that by emphasizing attributes these fallacies prevent non-native English-speaking teachers (NNESTs) of composition from professional legitimacy. We argue that emphasizing information and skills in composition can help legitimize NNESTs.
