FRESHMAN COMPOSITION--WHEN DO WE SAY WE'VE DONE THE JOB.
LAMBERTS, J.J.
COMPOSITION TEACHERS TOO OFTEN TEACH AS IF MOST OF THE STUDENTS WILL BECOME ENGLISH MAJORS. MANY TEACHERS ALSO GIVE POOR, UNDIRECTED WRITING ASSIGNMENTS AND ASSUME, AFTER CORRECTING THE PAPERS, THAT THEIR JOB IS ACCOMPLISHED. BECAUSE STUDENTS DO NOT LEARN TO WRITE BY THIS METHOD, THE COMPOSITION COURSE SHOULD BE CUT DOWN TO A FEW BASIC ESSENTIALS. THE STUDENT SHOULD BE MADE TO FEEL RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERY WORD HE WRITES, AND TO ASSUME THAT HE IS ON HIS OWN, FOR THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO LEARN TO WRITE. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "COLLEGE COMPOSITION AND COMMUNICATION," VOLUME 18, NUMBER 5, DECEMBER 1967, PAGES 232-235. (BN)
