Designing a Non-Remedial Freshman Composition Course for Mexican-Americans.
Trevino, Albert D.
This paper briefly examines the viability and potential of a non-remedial college freshman composition course designed for those Mexican-American students who are capable of entering and successfully completing the regular freshman English class. The rhetorical concepts and skills of composition normally taught in Freshman English can more easily be taught using content which is potentially of more interest to the Mexican-American student. This paper offers a few examples of the way in which certain selected materials may be used to teach various types of composition. (Author/DB)
