The Executive Board has put together the following State of the House resolution to be presented Saturday morning at CCCC’s business meeting.
The text (which has to be less than 50 words) reads:
“Be it resolved that Basic Writing is a vital field and its students and teacher scholars a productive force within composition; is under attack by exclusionary public policies; and therefore must be recognized publicly and supported by CCCC as a conference cluster and with featured sessions.”
1. At tomorrow night’s SIG, we will distribute a list for people to sign in support of the statement.
2. If you can be at the meeting on Saturday morning in Atlanta, please be there by 8 a.m. You can read or give a speech of 2 minutes or less in support of the statement.
3. Bill Lalicker and Shannon Carter will be presenting the statement on Saturday.
4. If you cannot be there, but would like to offer a statement to be read in your absence, please send it to the CBW-L by Friday morning. Shannon Carter will be compiling these statements to offer in support on the floor.
Thanks to everyone for your work in support of Basic Writing!
