The Freshman Composition Problem as a Viable Construct.
Taylor, Ethel Franklin
The freshmen composition program should be a viable construct which will satisfy both the felt and the long-range needs of students, meet the demands of society, and fulfill the ideals of a democracy. These aims cannot be met by an attachment by English teachers to a particular view of language or to a particular teaching concept. The person who teaches composition must be flexible and willing to change. The conscientious composition teacher realizes that good teaching requires effort. In addition, composition teachers must recognize that they are not teaching a subject, but that they are teaching students who must learn to develop a repertoire of English skills if they are to attain their chosen goals.
