About This Book
Already a classic in the field, Edward White's Developing Successful College Writing Programs remains an essential book for anyone involved in the teaching and/or administration of post-secondary writing instruction.
White shows how to develop and implement a comprehensive program that will improve both student writing and the overall college curriculum. Based on the findings of a five-year study on the effective teaching of writing, as well as on the author's extensive college teaching background and his many years as a writing program administrator, this book deals with recent research in the teaching of writing and its applications in the college classroom. We're pleased to be able to offer the first paperbound edition of this important title.
What people are saying about Developing Successful College Writing Programs . . .
This is an excellent and much-needed book that provides important advice for college administrators, deans, and English department chairs as well as writing program directors. The information is accurate and useful, the writing clear and frank. A major contribution.
— Richard Lloyd-Jones, University of Iowa, Past president of the National Council of Teachers of English
In recognizing the enormous complexity facing writing programs today and in offering as many concrete ways as possible of dealing with those complexities, White's is a 'real life' book, one that should be of great help to all those interested in helping others to 'see the complexity and importance of writing, to distinguish between the simple and not so simple, to be willing to accept the evidence of many kinds of serious inquiry into the nature of creative thought.
— Andrea Lunsford, Stanford University
[Developing Successful College Writing Programs] is a fine, wise, experienced introduction to the field, explaining clearly and in one place all that we know now from experience and research about the teaching of writing and the administering of writing programs."
— Chris Anderson, Oregon State University, in WPA: Writing Program Administration
