Mission Statement Ideas for the Council on Basic Writing

Here are hot ideas coming out of our discussions on a mission statement.

  • Because we believe that all students are learners  capable of constructing and expressing ideas that are both valuable and worthy of expression in academic, personal, civic, and professional contexts we think we should sponsor meetings, promote scholarship, with a wide range of stakeholders.
  • ACCESS and professionalization of our field are key issues (including GED and Adult Developmental Ed)
  • We must work to raise the visibility of basic writing’s central role to the academic and civic enterprise.
  • We must disseminate effective basic writing pedagogies.

More coming later!
