George Washington Univ., Washington, DC. Inst. for Educational Leadership.; National Public Radio, Washington, DC.
The perceived problems of college students' writing and possible ways to improve college writing instruction are the topics of these radio transcripts. In the first script, parents, teachers, and students comment on the state of writing in college. Professionals are interviewed who comment on the difference between oral and written English, the emphasis on clarity, the need for revision, computer analysis of writing as a way to analyze papers, and new ways to teach sentence parts. The second transcript focuses on the value of writing in the world of work. Emphasis is given to discussing technical writing required of engineers and business people and the merits of technical writing classes versus classes emphasizing the humanities. (MKM)
