Summary

This two-part collection presents 59 short essays by a cross-section of college instructors nationwide in response to four questions about writing students and five questions about writing teachers. Part I presents the responses to the following student-oriented questions: What are the common and special needs of writing students (including remedial students, those for whom English is a second language, and adult learners)? What motivates students and what are their responsibilities in learning how to write? How is student writing to be assessed and measured? What characterizes acceptable writing? Part II presents the responses to the following teacher-oriented questions: Who are writing teachers? What are the characteristics and responsibilities of good writing teachers? What are the philosophical issues that a writing teacher should confront? What methodologies and strategies have proven valuable in teaching writing? What kinds of materials and what course plans are useful in teaching writing? The essays, letters, and reports that are presented were chosen to reflect a cross-section of information that would be useful to faculty and administrators. The monograph concludes with a bibliography. (JP)
