The young composers : composition's beginnings in nineteenth-century schools by Lucille M Schultz( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucille M. Schultz's The Young Composers: Composition's Beginnings in Nineteenth-Century Schools is the first full-length history of school-based writing instruction."

Archives of instruction : nineteenth-century rhetorics, readers, and composition books in the United States by Jean Ferguson Carr( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Both a historical recovery and a critical rethinking of the functions and practices of textbooks, Archives of Instruction: Nineteenth-Century Rhetorics, Readers, and Composition Books in the United States argues for an alternative understanding of our rhetorical traditions. Jean Ferguson Carr, Stephen L. Carr, and Lucille M. Schultz describe how the pervasive influence and sophistication of nineteenth-century literacy textbooks demonstrate the early emergence of substantive instruction in reading and writing."--Jacket
Measuring Writing Apprehension in Required Freshman Composition and Upper-Level Writing Courses by Lucille M Schultz( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A pilot study was conducted on the student characteristics associated with changes in student writing apprehension. Data were collected from 300 students in freshman composition courses and 300 students in advanced (junior year) composition courses. These students completed the Writing Attitude Questionnaire at the beginning and at the end of their writing courses. No significant differences in initial (pretest) writing apprehension were found for men and women, for students in freshman versus junior courses, or for different college majors. Comparisons of pretests with posttests revealed significant reductions in student writing apprehension, regardless of student's college major, course level, and sex. A positive relationship was found between writing apprehension and the amount of writing that students anticipated in their chosen careers. There was a decrease from pretest to posttest in the percentage of students with high writing apprehension scores and increases in the percentages of both students with moderate writing apprehension and students with low writing apprehension.

The Young Composers: Composition's Beginnings in Nineteenth-CenturySchools. Studies in Writing and Rhetoric by Lucille M Schultz( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book, the first full-length history of school-based writing instruction, demonstrates that writing instruction in 19th-century American schools was more important than has previously been assumed in the overall history of writing instruction. Drawing on primary materials that have not been considered in previous histories of writing instruction (little-known textbooks and student writing that includes prize-winning essays, journal entries, letters, and articles written for school newspapers), the book shows that in 19th-century American schools the voices of the British rhetoricians that dominated college writing instruction were attenuated by the voice of the Swiss education reformer Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi. It was partly through the influence of Pestalozzi's thought that writing instruction for children in schools became child-centered, not just a replica or imitation of writing instruction in the colleges. These 19th-century schools prefigured some contemporary composition practices: free writing, peer editing, and the use of illustrations as writing prompts. The book features a chapter on the agency of textbook iconography, which includes illustrations from 19th-century composition books as well as a cultural analysis of those illustrations. Contains an extensive bibliography of 19th-century composition textbooks and student and school newspapers. (Nka)
