This book is a resource for college teachers who wonder what to do about grammar -- how to teach it, how to apply it. It offers teachers ways to negotiate the often conflicting goals of testing, confident writing, the culturally inclusive classroom.
by George Keller - The Johns Hopkins University Press
While he celebrated higher education as the engine of progress in every aspect of American life, George Keller also challenged academia's sacred cows and entrenched practices with provocative ideas designed to induce 'creative discomfort'.
The objective of this book is to lift the fog of the various misunderstandings of college: credits, courses, assignments, studying, etc. It is somewhat slanted toward US students; however, many of the things can be applied to different colleges.
