Bard South: Teaching Writing at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Lanoue, David G., Ed.; Wilson, Vivian A., Ed.
This collection of essays is introduced by Paul Connelly, who focuses on how the essayists encounter problems boldly and recognize opportunity in them--the essays are less local reports of various successful process approaches to teaching writing than a record of the willingness to experiment, to take risks, to learn. The essays and their authors are, as follows: "Reinforced Lessons: Strategies for Teaching Composition" (Elizabeth Brown Guillory and Barbara Loy); "Writing at Atlanta Junior College: A Team Sport" (Carla Ranger); "Saga of the Dragon Slayers or Perspectives on Teaching Writing at Spelman College" (Jacqueline Jones Royster and Anne Bradford Warner): "'Writing to Read': A Summer Writing Workshop for High School Students at Xavier University" (David G. Lanoue and Vivian A. Wilson); "Freewriting to Better Communication and a Better Self: Two Experiences" (Ernestine M. Pickens and Jocelyn W. Jackson); "Developmental, Advanced, and Professional Writing Classes at Tennessee State University" (Clayton G. Reeve and others); "Variations on a Theme--The Empathetic Approach to the Teaching of English" (Norman Benedict Elmore); "When Writers' Groups Work" (Kathy D. Jackson); "Writing for Learning: The Confession of a Committed Convert" (Gaye H. Hewitt); and "Back to the Source" (Luetta C. Milledge). Contains 11 references. (NKA)
