To be honest, I realize that most students, for whatever reason, wouldn’t be taking composition courses if they weren’t required to. I keep this in mind in my teaching. I try to give students as many choices as I can, both in classroom procedures and paper topics, so that meeting the objectives and standards of the General Studies Writing program can be as painless as possible.
