Reforming College Composition: Writing the Wrongs

Synopsis

As colleges and universities have responded to the demand of businesses and industries for graduates who can write effectively, Composition Studies has gained significance. However, in spite of the growing importance attached to writing, many composition courses do not satisfactorily educate their students. This volume includes essays by writing specialists who are concerned with their own failure to improve their students' writing skills. In addition to exploring the shortcomings of Composition Studies, the contributors discuss needed reforms for the teaching of writing.
