Writing to Solve Problems.
Baker, James D.
After a long process of trial and error, a freshman composition course was developed on the basis of three assumptions. First, freshman English should be a course in expository writing rather than a literature course, since a great deal of time is required for students to master the complicated skills involved in effective exposition. Second, freshman English should help students develop the writing skills they will use later in life in cooperating with others to solve problems. Third, freshman English should be rhetoric oriented, focusing on organized practice in the use of specific writing processes. The freshman English course based on these assumptions has proved effective for students of all ability levels. (GW)
