Summary

Intended for the growing number of composition faculty members involved in training graduate teaching assistants (TAs) and adjunct faculty to teach, as well as new teachers, this book presents essays addressing how best to prepare new teachers to teach writing, and what advice to offer new teachers about particular aspects of teaching writing. Also of value for faculty already engaged in teaching writing, many of the book's essays include substantial bibliographies, and all the essays outline successful strategies of the writing teacher. The essays and their authors are as follows: (1) "Unifying Diversity in the Training of Writing Teachers" (Richard C. Gebhardt); (2) "The Basics and the New Teacher in the College Composition Class" (Charles W. Bridges); (3) "TA Training: A Period of Discovery" (William F. Irmscher); (4) "Linking Pedagogy to Purpose for Teaching Assistants in Basic Writing" (Richard P. VanDeWeghe); (5) "The Teaching Seminar: Writing Isn't Just Rhetoric" (Nancy R. Comley); (6) "Fear and Loathing in the Classroom: Teaching Technical Writing for the First Time" (Don R. Cox); (7) "The Literature Major as Teacher of Technical Writing" (O. Jane Allen); (8) "The Great Commandment" (John J. Ruszkiewicz); (9) "Writing Right Off: Strategies for Invention" (Mary Jane Schenck); (10) "Planning for Spontaneity in the Writing Classroom and a Passel of Other Paradoxes" (Ronald F. Lunsford); (11) "Making Assignments, Judging Writing, and Annotating Papers: Some Suggestions" (Richard L. Larson); (12) "On Not Being a Composition Slave" (Maxine Hairston); (13)"Portfolio Evaluation: Room to Breathe and Grow" (Christopher C. Burnham); and (14) "How TAs Teach Themselves" (Timothy R. Donovan, Patricia Sprouse, and Patricia Williams). (HTH)
