9780809329564: The Community College Writer: Exceeding Expectations (Studies in Writing & Rhetoric (Paperback))

While there have been several studies of writing programs at larger, baccalaureate institutions, the community college classroom has often been overlooked. Authors Howard Tinberg and Jean-Paul Nadeau fill this gap with The Community College Writer, a systematic and unique case study of first semester writing students at a community college. Drawing on surveys, interviews, and samples of classroom assignments, Tinberg and Nadeau use their research at one community college to reach out to instructors throughout the nation, fostering communication between community college faculty members in the effort to establish full-fledged writing programs geared toward student success.

At the heart of the book are the voices of the students themselves, as they discuss both their teachers’ expectations and their own. Through a series of case studies, the authors reveal the challenges students face as budding writers, and their firsthand experiences with writing programs at the community college level.

With this informative study, Tinberg and Nadeau seek not only to encourage dialogue between student and teacher or community college instructors, but to expand the conversation about program improvement to include both two- and four-year colleges, bringing composition faculty together in an effort to improve writing programs in all schools. Included in the volume are seven appendices, including surveys and interviews with faculty and students, making The Community College Writer a comprehensive and practical guide to tackling the issues facing writing programs and instructors.

About the Author:

Howard Tinberg, a professor of English at Bristol Community College, Massachusetts, is the author of Border Talk: Writing and Knowing in the Two-Year College and Writing with Consequence: What Writing Does in the Disciplines and is a coeditor of What is College-Level” Writing?

Jean-Paul Nadeau, a coauthor of Foundations for Learning, is an assistant professor of English at Bristol Community College.

 

Review:

“Tinberg and Nadeau’s groundbreaking report draws upon hundreds of student surveys from four two-year campuses across the country, and paints a compelling portrait of the role writing instruction plays in acclimating students new to college.  The Community College Writer is must reading not only for community college educators but all whose concern is literacy education.” 
 —Jeff Sommers, editor of Teaching English in the Two-Year College
