Straight Talk and Honest Writing.
Dossin, Mary Mortimore
Composition Chronicle: Newsletter for Writing Teachers, v10 nl p5-7 Feb 1997
Collaboration is an important concept in education today. Writing teachers are encouraged to collaborate with instructors in different disciplines and at different levels, and to set up collaborative projects for their students. Three writing teachers at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh have, for the past several years, held a spring conference with writing teachers from area junior high and high schools and community colleges. About 20-25 participants listen to 4 or 5 presenters, followed by discussions after each presentation. Among topics at a recent conference with the theme of honesty in writing and in teaching were "Honest Standards for Underprepared Students," questions about standards in courses beyond freshman composition, and a demonstration of a college writing course workshop on "Where Plagiarism Begins--And Ends." (Contains two sample forms.) (CR)
