Special Sections of Freshman English--A Pragmatic Approach to Teaching University Students with Poor Writing Skills.
Lifschutz, Ellen St. Sure
This report describes the Special Sections of Freshman English for Poorly Prepared Students at the University of California at Berkeley. The development of the program is described, including the rationale behind the course, the diverse student make-up, and some of the teaching techniques used (allowing students to choose topics, peer editing, and having students read at least two book-length works per semester). The paper also describes how teaching assistants are incorporated into the course design and finally reports on how budget cuts ended the program. (CRH)
