Description

Whether the new instructor of first-year composition looks forward to that first class period with anticipation, dread, or a mix of emotions, Strategies for Teaching First-Year Composition offers guidance, reassurance, and thoughtful commentary on the many activities leading up to and surrounding classroom instruction:

  • What preparation do I need to teach first-year comp?
  • How do I construct a syllabus?
  • How do I develop effective writing assignments?
  • Why am I teaching writing at all?
  • And what’s the place of writing in a university education?

The texts included in this collection respond to these questions and many others with ideas, suggestions, and experiences from both veteran and new teachers.

The editors have generously donated the royalties earned from sales of this book to the CCCC Scholars for the Dream Travel Awards. These awards encourage scholarship by historically underrepresented groups--including African Americans, Asian Americans, Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans and other Latino and Latina Americans, and American Indians--by providing funding to attend the annual convention of the Conference on College Composition and Communication.
