Opinion: Ethos Interrupted: Diffusing "Star" Pedagogy in Creative Writing Programs
Ritter, Kelly
College English, v69 n3 p283-292 Jan 2007
Many graduate creative writing programs depend on "star" faculty who have been hired more because of their professional reputation as writers than because of their commitment to teaching. As a result, such programs often fail to provide reflection on teaching that would truly serve their students. One step toward alleviating this problem is to offer undergraduate courses that enable creative writing graduate students to team-teach with regular faculty. (Contains 3 notes.)
