Palladino, Mary Anne
Written for use at Glassboro State College (New Jersey), this guidebook is designed to make college composition teachers aware of the writing competencies they should expect from their students, to provide those teachers with a technique for reacting to student papers, and to provide them with advising and referral information for students with writing problems. The various sections offer the following: results of a survey of business and industrial organizations to ascertain the communication skills required for entry-level positions and how those skills are determined by the employer; results of a survey of the college's faculty concerning their role in ensuring the writing competency of general studies graduates; the writing competency criteria, writing evaluation form, and correction symbols used at the college; steps in making the writing assignment; suggestions for teaching the writing of research papers, including suggested research manuals and a research paper rating sheet; suggestions for the essay question; advising information, including a discussion of the college learning skills center, lists of writing handbooks and of writing courses offered at the college, and rules for exempting a student from a course; and some thoughts on grading. Three student papers and their rating sheets are appended. (FL)
