High School Teachers and Freshman Composition.
Shuman, R. Baird
A university associates program is designed to bring secondary school English teachers in the United States to the freshman composition classrooms of a large university. Upon recommendation by their superintendents and with one-year sabbatical leaves funded at half-salary by their school districts, those selected teach three sections of freshman composition and participate in a writing seminar, for which the university pays a maximum salary of $10,000. They participate in a week-long orientation session prior to beginning their teaching assignments and meet regularly with freshman rhetoric advisors. Results of the program include the interchange of ideas in the writing seminar between associates and regular faculty and the availability of the associates as resource people in their home school districts.
