A STUDY OF FRESHMAN ENGLISH, AN INFORMAL STUDY.
HOBLITZELLE, HARRISON
A BRIEF STUDY OF THE FRESHMAN ENGLISH CURRICULUM FOCUSES, FOR THE MOST PART, UPON STATE UNIVERSITIES. A DESCRIPTION IS GIVEN OF THE PHILOSOPHY UNDERLYING THE COURSE, INCLUDING SUCH MATTERS AS STAFFING AND ORIENTATION OF TEACHERS, ARTICULATION WITH FEEDER SCHOOLS, AND THE EFFECT OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN RHETORIC, LOGIC, AND LANGUAGE STUDY. TEXT BOOKS, GRADING, AND CLASS SIZE ALSO ARE DISCUSSED BRIEFLY. THE PRELIMINARY FINDINGS OF THIS STUDY INDICATE A NEED TO UPGRADE FRESHMAN ENGLISH, A STEP WHICH PRESUPPOSES ADMINISTRATIVE RECOGNITION OF FRESHMAN ENGLISH AS THE MOST IMPORTANT SINGLE COURSE IN THE UNIVERSITY. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "COLLEGE ENGLISH," VOLUME 28, NUMBER 8, MAY 1967, PAGES 596-600. (BN)
