All God's Children Don't Got Shoes. . .
McPherson, Elisabeth
Of the various accomplishments of the Conference on College Composition and Communication during the 1970's, three decisions have been outstanding: organizing and assisting two-year college English teachers, supporting the racism and bias committee, and adopting the resolution on the students' right to their own language. These decisions, with their roots in the 1950's and 1960's, are aiding composition instruction to develop into a college course with its own integrity in which students learn to control their own ideas and to write by catching, examining, and keeping their experiences. There are many good approaches for helping students to realize that what they have to say counts and that writing is not to be done according to a formula. (JM)
