Alternative Models of First-Year Composition: Possibilities and Problems.
Bamberg, Betty
WPA: Writing Program Administration, v21 n1 p7-18 Fall 1997
Examines the theoretical and pragmatic objections to first-year composition courses raised by recent abolitionists who are composition insiders. Assesses four frequently proposed alternative models of first-year composition. Discusses evaluating these alternatives from the perspective of a writing program administrator's dual roles of curriculum designer/innovator and day-to-day administrator, examining student-based, faculty-based, and administrative concerns and constraints.
