Role of Writing in the World of Work: An Experimental Enrichment Program for First-Year English.
Darrell, Bob
The first-year writing program at Kentucky Wesleyan College includes "The Role of Writing in the World of Work" program, an experimental activity in which distinguished representatives from business, industry, and the professions spend one workday explaining the role of writing in their occupations. Each visitor speaks no longer than 12 minutes, in workshop settings, on the following topics: skills necessary to enter that occupation, the role of these skills in promotion and advancement, and typical writing problems encountered. According to student, visitor, and faculty evaluations, the program has increased awareness of the relationship between writing and careers and has increased interest in mastering good writing habits. Questionnaires used to obtain reactions to the program are included as appendixes. (Author/AA)
