What Is Freshman Composition For? Reasserting the Personal Essay and Retheorizing Academic Reading.
Foster, Paula
Writing Instructor, v14 n1 p5-15 Fall 1994
States that freshman composition should make freshmen more able to communicate in academic discourse and that each professor teaches the students with emphasis on personal beliefs. Examines the dilemma of freshman composition as a service course. Calls for more and better use of the personal narrative as an alternative way of approaching the so often privileged argumentative essay. (PA)
