The WPA as Pragmatist: Recasting "Service" as "Human Science."
Bushman, Donald
WPA: Writing Program Administration, v23 n1-2 p29-43 Fall-Win 1999
Suggests that a pragmatic concern for self-understanding through reflection and action is central to the role of the Writing Program Administrator (WPA), and that recognizing these two principle elements of a pragmatist philosophy in the work of WPAs bolsters the argument of the "Intellectual Work Document." Promotes a self-awareness of one's actions (the teaching of writing) through opportunities for reflection. (SG)
