Kwalick, Barry, Ed.; Slaughter, Virginia, Ed.
The proceedings of the fourth annual Association of Writing Supervisors within the City University of New York (CUNY) are offered in this special newsletter issue. The papers from the proceedings are organized under the five thematic strands of the conference, which confronted the central issues of writing instruction at CUNY. The five strands are (1) literacy and employment, including employers' viewpoints and teaching career-oriented writing courses; (2) writing assessment, including the CUNY Writing Test and the curriculum, the New York City Schools and the City University, and the CUNY Writing Test and current research in writing; (3) grants for college writing programs; (4) writing instruction and English as a second language; and (5) teaching models, including affective approaches, planning courses, language styles and voices, and methods of teaching writing.
