The Composition Instructor's Survival Guide

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 138

View: 1316

The Composition Instructor's Survival Guide is written for the most overlooked segment of today's English departments: the more than forty thousand instructors who do the actual composition teaching, most of them for low pay, no benefits, no hope of tenure. It is the first book to speak for this largely silent group - to voice the anger composition instructors feel at their treatment, to articulate the reasons why composition courses and teachers deserve more respect, and, most important, to enumerate what composition instructors can do to make their jobs easier and more pleasurable. In this book, twenty-three-year-veteran Brock Dethier addresses some of the dilemmas composition instructors confront: How can we respect ourselves and what we do in the face of scorn, even from our English department colleagues? How can we keep our eyes focused on the intrinsic rewards of our jobs when the tangible benefits elude us? How can we appreciate the advantages of being invisible yet struggle for recognition? How can we reduce the time, stress, and responsibilities of our jobs, but still provide students with worthwhile college experiences? How can we rise above the daily traumas of the job to remember that it's fun? The first few chapters describe long-range, broad, often intangible goals instructors can work toward: building respect, learning to appreciate the intrinsic benefits of the job. The subsequent chapters are more specific and practical, with suggestions on dealing with common frustrations and creating a great class, even when all plans go awry. Readers may come away from the book with ideas about new careers or about creating change in their present jobs, but they will almost certainly gain a greater appreciation for and sense of satisfaction from their work. Dethier provides moral, theoretical, practical, and bibliographical resources for beginning and experienced teachers; the last chapter alone outlines a dozen class activities that require little or no preparation, but are certain to educate and entertain.

Surviving in the Newspaper Business

Willis' almost total textbook analysis of today's newspaper makes Surviving in the Newspaper Business precisely what it claims to be: A how-to guide to newspaper management in the 1980s and beyond . . . a set of unified principles for successful management.' It explains the supervision and organization of each department and stresses the importance of keeping the paper responsive to the needs of its readers, advertisers and, somewhat surprisingly, even its employees. Willis talks about advertising, circulation and marketing strategies and how to deal with competition from TV, the suburban weeklies and labor unions. He looks at the editor as a people manager, ' something that more than one tradition-bound editor has been unable to do for himself. The book has sample budgets and organizational charts and even a discussion of the relative merits of adult vs. youth carriers. Newspaper Research Journal Professor Jim Willis' book is a nicely condensed overview of the newspaper as a business. Though it is aimed at journalism students enrolled in newspaper management classes, it is also worthwhile reading for the curious reporter or copy editor who knows little about how newspapers make and spend money. . . . The book is sprinkled with good, common sense about balancing newspapers as a business against newspapering as good journalism. Professor Willis makes a gallant attempt to make sure students understand that though the newspaper must make a profit to survive, it will never truly excel unless it produces a good news-editorial product. ASNE Bulletin Surviving in the Newspaper Business is a how-to-do-it guide to newspaper management for the 1980s and beyond. It presents a set of unified principles for successful management and exposes the student to the primary mission of the newspaper: to deliver a quality product to the depth and breadth of the marketplace. Stressing the importance of the total newspaper concept, Willis portrays the successful newspaper as integrated internally among departments and externally with its readership and advertisers. In addition, he analyzes the newspaper's industrial environment, discusses management survival strategies, considers business and finance plans, and assesses organizational behavior in the newsroom. Included are a series of hands-on case studies offering further insights into topics discussed.
