Breaking Boundaries (Paperback)Carol Comfort (author)
- We can order this
A brief reader for courses in Developmental Writing at the paragraph/essay level or Freshman Composition.
Respectfully treating developmental students as intelligent, capable students, Breaking Boundaries, a reader for developing writers, provides instruction, readings, and activities that more closely resemble "college-level" work-e.g., longer readings, more varied readings (multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, multi-genre), specific strategies for becoming stronger readers, direct instruction in the writingprocess, and an array of post-reading writing assignments that are not based solely on personal experiences. Often, there is a significant gap between the work students are asked to do in Basic Writing and what is required of them in Freshman Composition-and, as a result, their successes in developmental writing may still leave them unprepared for baccalaureate-level work. Breaking Boundaries offers an important and significant alternative to typical developmental texts-those that offer only one- to two-paragraph readings and worksheet drills.
