I Want My Writing Students to Call Me "Coach."
Kremers, Marshall
The metaphor of the writing "coach" is used to explore a writing-process approach to the teaching of freshman writing. This approach allows for personal discovery leading to the same sense of accomplishment that the superior athlete enjoys. The mastery of higher levels of skill similarly leads to the potential for higher levels of performance. To serve as an effective "coach," the writing teacher must be constantly involved in the process of writing. The teacher's efforts and problems become part of the course content, shared with the students to help them understand what happens in the process of writing. (AA)
