The Permanent Temps' Lament: Why Not Tenure Status?
Lemon, Hallie S.; And Others
This scripted dialogue is a fully documented story about the history and conditions of one group of post-secondary teachers of English. The narrative focuses on the proposal of this group of "permanent" temporary writing instructors from Western Illinois University to convince administrators to change their status to tenure track by allowing the Master's Degree to be considered a tenurable degree for composition in the Department of English and Journalism. The document contains dialogue among five participants in the story as well as a detailed overview of their proposal. A chronology of the university's definition of and edicts concerning temporary instructors is included; and nine appendixes, including a chronology of working conditions, salary charts, evaluation criteria, letters and memoranda, are attached. (Contains 15 references.) (Author/SAM)
