Writing the Transition to College: A Summer College Writing Experience at Elon University
Moore, Jessie L.; Pyne, Kimberly B.; Patch, Paula
Composition Forum, v27 Spr 2013
The College Writing/Elon Academy summer partnership at Elon University offers a program model for supporting underrepresented students' transition to college. While the modified section of a required first-year writing course has some limitations, the summer course supports students' development of more complex writing processes and provides access to college capital prior to their university matriculation. In this profile we describe our course design, assessment of outcomes, and primary assessment results, and we offer reflections on and recommendations for designing transitional writing courses for underrepresented students based on our experiences.
