Description

This book packages together all the coursework required for one complete semester’s materials in the introductory college composition course. It is concise but comprehensive, portable and accessible, pragmatic yet pedagogically and theoretically sound. And it is filled with lessons and activities ready for any instructor to teach tomorrow - or even today, when necessary. This Guidebook is designed to help the part-time college writing instructor survive the first year of teaching an introductory college composition class. Written primarily for adjunct instructors, it could benefit others who might be involved in the first-year writing course, including college professors and teaching assistants as well as students taking or preparing to take English composition. Beyond survival, the Guidebook may even help teachers and their students to thrive in their first-year writing experience.
