Developing successful college writing programs by Edward M White( Book )

8 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing instruction programs have become particularly important at American colleges and universities in recent years, but it is noted that most college faculties and their administrators need advice about providing useful help to the writing programs. An examination of how to develop successful writing programs is presented. Three sections are as follows: (1) examining the current status of writing instruction (improving the campus climate for writing programs, insights from research on existing programs, and strengths and weaknesses of approaches to teaching writing); (2) providing a basis for effective writing programs (teaching writing within the undergraduate curriculum, defining purposes and issues in the assessment of writing ability, and using tests for admissions, placement, and instructional evaluation); and (3) organizational, staffing, and teacher development strategies (establishing an effective writing program on campus, supporting, evaluating, and rewarding writing program faculty, preparing and certifying writing instructors for colleges and schools, and evaluating program effectiveness). Two appended resources offer an evaluation of the Writing-Across-The-Curriculum program at the Minnesota Community College System and guidelines for self-study to precede a writing program evaluation. Contains about 90 references. (Sm)

A thought-provoking response concludes each section
Composition in the twenty-first century : crisis and change by Lynn Z Bloom( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book, stemming from a national conference of the same name, focus on the single subject required of nearly all college students - composition. Despite its pervasiveness and its significance, composition has on unstable status within the curriculum. Writing programs and writing faculty are besieged by academic, political, and financial concerns that have not been well understood or addressed. At many institutions, composition functions paradoxically as both the gateway to academic success and as the gatekeeper, reducing access to academic work and opportunity for those with limited facility in English. Although writing programs are expected to provide services that range from instruction in correct grammar to assisting - or resisting - political correctness, expanding programs and shrinking faculty get caught in the crossfire. The bottom line becomes the firing line as forces outside the classroom determine funding and seek to define what composition should do. In search of that definition, the contributors ask and answer a series of specific and salient questions: What implications - intellectual, political, and institutional - will forces outside the classroom have on the quality and delivery of composition in the twenty-first century? How will faculty and administrators identify and address these issues? What policies and practices ought we propose for the century to come? This book features sixteen position papers by distinguished scholars and researchers in composition and rhetoric; most of the papers are followed by invited responses by other notable compositionists. In all, twenty-five contributors approach composition from a wide variety of contemporary perspectives: rhetorical, historical, social, cultural, political, intellectual, economic, structural, administrative, and developmental. They propose solutions applicable to pedagogy, research, graduate training of composition teachers, academic administration, and public and social policy. In a very real sense, then, this is the only book to offer a map to the future of composition

Very like a whale : the assessment of writing programs by Edward M White( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written for those who design, redesign, and assess writing programs, Very Like a Whale is an intensive discussion of writing program assessment issues. Taking its title from Hamlet, the book explores the multifaceted forces that shape writing programs and the central role these programs can and should play in defining college education. Given the new era of assessment in higher education, writing programs must provide valid evidence that they are serving students, instructors, administrators, alumni, accreditors, and policymakers. This book introduces new conceptualizations associated with assessment, making them clear and available to those in the profession of rhetoric and composition/writing studies. It also offers strategies that aid in gathering information about the relative success of a writing program in achieving its identified goals. Philosophically and historically aligned with quantitative approaches, White, Elliot, and Peckham use case study and best-practice scholarship to demonstrate the applicability of their innovative approach, termed Design for Assessment (DFA). Well grounded in assessment theory, Very Like a Whale will be of practical use to new and seasoned writing program administrators alike, as well as to any educator involved with the accreditation process"--
