Social Utility and Needs-based Education: Writing Instruction at the Early Junior College.
DeGenaro, William
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v28 n2 p129-40 Dec 2000
Notes how early junior college compositionists sought to socialize a largely working-class student body into a middle-class sensibility. Argues that educators must make time to create historical narratives of two-year colleges as a valuable precursor to fighting for institutional reforms within institutions. Analyzes the manner that curriculum builders in the 1920s and 1930s constructed first-year writing courses at junior colleges. (SC)
