Focus: What's Really Basic in Composition.
Stewart, Donald, Ed.
Kansas English, v62 n1 Entire Issue December 1976
The articles in this issue of "Kansas English" discuss and define what is basic in composition. The first article, by Richard Lloyd-Jones, discusses the teaching of composition and the preparation of teachers of composition. The second article, by Hans P. Guth, suggests a positive modern approach to language, designed to help students become more effective users of language in their own right. The third article, by David Bronson, asserts that, when we talk about English as a subject, we are talking about writing. His discussion of English as writing includes historical background, the relationship of writing and cognitive development, and pedagogical possibilities. Peter T. Zoller, in the fourth article, reviews "Teaching Composition: 10 Biographical Essays," edited by Gary Tate. The final article, by Lois Caffyn, discusses the recent attack on minicourses and makes suggestions for teachers and administrators. (LL)
