"This collection maps the Beat Generation movement globally, exploring American Beat writers alongside parallel movements in other countries that shared a critique of global capitalism and a sense of the permeability of national and cultural boundaries. Ranging from the immediate post-World War II period and continuing into the 1990s, the essays illustrate Beat participation in the global circulation of a poetics of dissent that both affirms and transforms nation/state identities"

The Writing Lab as a Focus for Faculty Education by Jennie Skerl( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

College faculty members will welcome a writing lab when they think it will help students perform at an acceptable level in their classes. For this reason, a major task of the writing lab is to convince the faculty that teaching writing is everyone's job. However, even when other faculty members concede this, they are often hampered by three common misconceptions about the writing process and how to improve student efforts: teaching writing on the college level is a remedial task, writing is a test rather than a learning process, and writing is a technology concerned with stylistic niceties and grammatical correctness rather than with the organization and development of ideas. All three of these misconceptions underlie the idea that teaching is someone else's job and all lead to counterproductive approaches to teaching writing. The writing lab gains acceptance when faculty members recognize that the development of writing skills is an ongoing process for which writing labs are a focus. (Tj)
