Summary

Colleges should implement cafeteria composition (a widely varied program of composition) in order to acknowledge the huge variety of educational needs, educational objectives, and socially useful functions to which colleges must respond. As a prelude to this argument, the educational philosophies of Miller and Smitherman may be reviewed. Miller considers composition courses to be an incentive for student creativity, but Smitherman, without rejecting aesthetic concern for language, sees composition courses as a service designed primarily to help students do their work in other college courses more competently. Cafeteria composition incorporates both of these educational objectives by making available to students a variety of courses taught by a variety of teachers with different approaches and styles.
