Universities Scramble To Find Teachers of Freshman Composition.
Wilson, Robin
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n10 pA12-A14 Oct 30 1998

Although they may be skilled writers, many receive little or no formal training in how to teach writing. Issues concerning the unionization of teaching assistants are also a factor. (MSE)
