Ideas for English 101: Teaching Writing in College.
Ohmann, Richard, Ed.; Coley, W. B., Ed.
The articles in this book are concerned with teaching composition in freshman English courses. They were first published in "College English" during the years from 1966 to 1975. These selections represent both the theoretical discussions and the technical plans which were put forth in a period when freshman English was being dropped as a required course in many colleges. The contents are divided into the following two sections: "What Should Freshman English Be? Methods and Controversies" and "Tactics." Among the essays included are "Toward Competence and Creativity in the Open Class" by Lou Kelly, "The Teaching of Writing as Writing" by W. E. Coles, Jr., "Hydrants Into Elephants: The Theory and Practice of College Composition" by George Stade, "Behavioral Objectives for English" by Robert Zoellner,"'Topics' and Levels in the Composing Process" by W. Ross Winterowd, "Using Painting, Photography and Film to Teach Narration" by Joseph Comprone, "Teaching Freshman Comp to New York Cops" by David Siff, "Cassettes in the Classroom" by Enno Klammer, and "What Students Can Do to Take the Burden Off You" by Francine Hardaway.
