The Influence of the Nature of a College upon the Development of a Freshman Program in English.
Bryan, Jonathan Randolph
The purpose of this study was to formulate a single principle providing guidance for directors in the development of freshman English programs in a college or university. A preliminary investigation indicated that directors, in developing these programs, had considered academic, administrative, faculty, and student characteristics. Case studies of the development of the programs in seven colleges were conducted using questionnaires and interviews. The principle formulated from the results was that a director can establish a rationale for developing a program individually adapted to his college. Having described the pertinent characteristics of his college, he can then rank them to establish priorities and to determine the influence of type of design, the curricular emphases, and the instructional policies if each consideration were applied. Conflicts among the resulting components can be resolved through compromises or by changing the characteristics exerting conflicting influences. (Author/DI)
