Course X: A Left Field Guide to Freshman English.
Greenbaum, Leonard A.; Schmerl, Rudolf B.
Part I of this book attempts to provide students with an understanding of the "academic enterprise" as a whole, and specifically the structures, people, money, myths and practices which create that peculiar enterprise known as freshman English, an experience through which the majority of college students must pass. Part II offers students a methodology of survival and change: by suggesting a process of "team learning" in the three major aspects of freshman English--the classroom, the paper, and the conference, it offers a way of learning how to write outside of an imposed system and a guide to developing the ability to teach one's self and to aid in the education of fellow students.
