A Report on the Freshman Writing Program.
Hartzog, Carol; And Others
This review of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) Writing Programs was undertaken for several reasons, among them the rapid increase of research in writing, the inconsistency among courses, and the need to reshape and expand the programs. The report begins with a summary of earlier reviews of UCLA's composition program. Following a brief discussion of the nature of the review committees, the report describes administrative changes and proposes a freshman writing program, listing its general principles, curriculum, goals, course descriptions, textbooks, and testing. Recommendations are offered for courses and their requirements and for changes in teaching assignments, orientation, training, committees, courses, and reviews. The report concludes with projections for bilingual and second language students, freshman preparatory programs, and remediation. Appendixes include a history of the review, a list of subcommittee members and their charges, subcommittee reports, an instructor's guide, and a sourcebook for the new writing teacher. (HOD)
