The Discourse Of Crisis And The Struggle For Cultural Authority: The Politics Of Humanities Education In The Last Twentieth Century , Nancy L. Warehime

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The intent of this study is to place the widely-debated humanities crisis of the 1980s in cultural context, to unravel the discourse of crisis in order to examine what it signifies. What does it mean that the academic humanities have deteriorated in stature and purpose, particularly since the mid-part of this century? What are the roots and implications of the many diverse interpretations of this crisis? What authority do the humanities command in relation to today's social and political world? Is there, as critics of both the political Left and Right have charged, an important link between the demise ...

Spiritual Development: A Descriptive Study Of College Freshmen At A Selected Institution Of The Christian College Coalition , Alan Stevens Cureton

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Questioning As A Teacher Intervention Tool To Stimulate Student Revision, Judith Kay Ramsey

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Revision is neglected in many freshman composition classes even though it is now recognized as one of the recursive elements of the writing process. Early composition research acknowledged revision as a part of the writing process, and some researchers considered it a cure for nearly all the ills of student writing, seeming to believe that revision would surely lead to better written products, and the more revision the better the product. Later research, however, has revealed a complex web of issues surrounding the element of revision.

Based on that body of composition research, this paper will establish a need for ...

Keeping That Honest Voice: Teaching Writing To Adolescents Through The Adolescent Novel, Janet R. Laville

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Junior high teachers often brainwash early adolescents with our answers. This brainwashing sometimes continues on through high school. Those who learn our truths, read our books, write on our topics, pass our tests, learn our grammar, and, if they choose to, pass on to college, make up the voiceless writers of colleges and universities across the country.

Caging The Muse: Freewriting's Place In The Teaching Of Composition, An Historical Overview, Randy Dean Smith

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

How much one can trust the public media to accurately and exhaustively report on the nature and depth of educational problems is questionable. Certainly the media have hyped the problem so that the public perceives a crisis, and a number of popular and even scholarly authors have ridden the crisis bandwagon. But the extent of the problem has never been definitively documented, and both the public and educators have had to respond to their own perceptions in their own limited context. Such has been the case with teachers and researchers in the English language arts, specifically reading and writing. Graduates ...
