Teaching Students to Write across a Border: A Writing Curriculum for Inner-City College Access Programs
Dobbs, Jennifer Kwon
Metropolitan Universities, v22 n3 p115-128 2012
This article explores the development of the Summer Tools, Information, Motivation, and Education (SummerTIME) Writing Program, the only program of its kind in Los Angeles that conducts self-assessment. The author describes the geographical and political boundaries separating inner-city Los Angeles high school graduates from higher education, contextualizes the pedagogy that informed the founding of this program's curriculum, and analyzes the program's strengths and weaknesses as a potential model for inner-city college access.
