Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes rather than evaluates over 1,000 works--mostly journal articles--relating to the importance and implementation of writing programs in the whole range of disciplines that make up the educational curriculum. The section on scholarship includes such chapters as history and implementation, and theory and rationale; that on pedagogy discusses arts and humanities, natural and social sciences, and business and law; specific textbooks, and other aspects.
