Two-Year College English: Essays for a New Century.
Reynolds, Mark, Ed.
Noting that the nearly 1,400 two-year colleges in the United States enroll almost half of all students in higher education, this collection of essays discusses the students, the curriculum, and the faculty at these colleges. In essence, the collection surveys what is "on the minds" of two-year college English teachers. The essays and their authors are: (1) "Introduction" (Mark Reynolds); (2) "I Am Not the Look in Your Eyes" (Janice M. Albert); (3) "This New Breed of College Students" (Mary L. Needham); (4) "'The Old Lady in the Student Lounge': Integrating the Adult Female Student into the College Classroom" (Mary Kay Morrison); (5) "What Happened to Darleen? Reconstructing the Life and Schooling of an Underprepared Learner" (Smokey Wilson); (6) "Latina/o College Writing Students: Linguistic, Cultural, and Gender Issues" (Kate Mangelsdorf); (7) "Aliteracy among Community College Students" (Raelyn Augustin Joyce); (8) "Today for Tomorrow: Program and Pedagogy for 21-st Century College Students" (Claudia M. Barrett and Judith A. Wootten); (9) "Writing Everybody In" (Myrna Goldenberg and Barbara Stout); (10) "The Integration Project: A Model for Curriculum Transformation" (Judith Rae Davis and Sandra S. Silverberg); (11) "If at First You Don't Succeed: Effective Strategies for Teaching Composition in the Two-Year College" (Ellen Andrews Knodt); (12) "A Quarter Century and Beyond: My Story of Teaching Technical Communication" (Nell Ann Pickett); (13) "Honors English in the Two-Year Colleges" (Jean Bolen Bridges); (14) "Writing in Cyberspace: Communication, Community, and the Electronic Network" (Mark C. Harris and Jeff Hooks); (15) "Community College Teaching: Endless Possibilities" (Al Starr); (16) "The Future Community College Instructor as a Business Executive" (Karen Hodges); (17) "Renewed Vitality in the 21st Century: The Partnership between Two-Year College and University English Departments" (Bertie E.
