Next Steps for CBW

Michael Hill’s presentation today challenged the Council on Basic Writing to move beyond a mission statement to focus on best practice statements, like WPA and NCTE and CCCC have. His call to action included:

Clear & Strong Best Practice Statements on issues like:

  • assessment
  • grammar instruction
  • placement procedures
  • class size
  • faculty training
  • ESL
  • programmatic support
  • textbooks
  • contingent faculty
  • acceleration
  • what it means to teach for student voice & student empowerment
  • curriculum
