Designed primarily for English faculty at two-year colleges in California, "Inside English" includes articles on instructional innovations in teaching remedial writing, literature courses, and freshman composition, and on major curricular, administrative, and employment issues in the field. The four issues in volume 9 contain the following feature articles: (1) "The Left and Right-Brain Hemispheres... Writing Right... And Left...," by Ron Stotts, which suggests writing instruction methods that make use of the right and left hemispheres of the brain; (2) "Students & Teachers & Teachers & Students," by Doug Lane, which considers ways of turning the English classroom into a workshop; (3) "Television Courses and Teaching: Two Viewpoints," by James Moore and Gordon Taylor, which offers two opposing positions on the telecourses; (4) "The Literature of the Holocaust: Lest We Forget or They Never Know," by Julie Swan Hatoff; (5) "The Hidden Joys of One to One," by Rose Brown; (6) "What I Did When... Gobbledygook in the Classroom," by Shirley Sykes, which suggests an enjoyable class exercise to turn adages into obscure writing; (7) "Meno's Slave, Gamow's Presses, and GIGIO: Why We Can't Use Computers to Teach English Composition," by Paul Kaser; (8) "A Strategy That Works: Teaching Communication Skills through the Summary," by Judith Ramos; (9) "Assessment-Placement: Whose Responsibility?
