Democracy's open door : the community college in America's future by Marlene Griffith( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Community colleges concentrate on the neglected first two years of college; raise educational levels of underprepared students; educates and trains students to be qualified, skilled workers; and re-educates those whose skills are outdated; and those who have college degrees but no work skills. Drawing from interviews with community college students, faculty, and administrators, this book seeks to demonstrate the value of open-door institutions of higher learning which are being threatened by budget cuts and public and professional misunderstandings and misperceptions. The book contains 10 chapters: (1) "The New Educational Reality," which dispels the myth that college students are all 18-year olds enrolling in four-year colleges; (2) "David and Connie: Writing Their Own Educational Scripts," which profiles two students with nontraditional educational paths; (3) "Community College Students: Diverse Goals, Diverse Paths," which examines community colleges' responses to many different needs; (4) "Builders of Community, Agents of Change," which explores the colleges' role in and responsibility to the community; (5) "Teaching Today's Students," which urges teachers to find new ways to teach the changing population; (6) "Initiating the Uninitiated: The Uses of Language," which delves into the area of teaching underprepared, illiterate, or non-English speaking students; (7) "Educating a Vital Workforce," which takes on the topic of vocational education; (8) "Big and Bold: Democracy's Colleges," which examines the commonalities and differences between community colleges; (9) "Keeping the Door Open: History and Change," which offers a historical perspective; and (10) "Community College Issues: What Is Success?," Which suggests more relevant ways to measure success than numbers of students transferring to four-year institutions.

After a brief introduction in which the writing concepts of fluency, shape, and correctness are defined, the rest of the booklet presents the work of three beginning writers who enrolled in a college writing workshop program to improve their language skills. Actual samples of the students' writing are used to demonstrate their progress in improving their writing fluency, and the techniques used by their tutor/readers are explained. (Aea)

Writing to Think. National Writing Project Occasional Paper No. 4 by Marlene Griffith( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for writing teachers, from middle-elementary level through college, this booklet describes a teaching method that lets students write their own way into ideas, merging personal experience with intellectual thought in expository writing. The booklet first describes in greater detail the concept of writing to think as focused free writing--required but not graded or revised--that allows students to bring vague perceptions to a verbal level explicit enough for them to reconsider or extend. It then presents four examples, writing samples from two students who write easily and two who have difficulty, to illustrate different kinds of mindwork made possible by this kind of thinking on paper. Discussion of the examples focuses on the personal and intellectual qualities present in the writings. (Hth)
