Service Courses: Forays to Bridge the Gulf and Invite New “Citizens”

Carolyn Sturgeon

Abstract


Teaching service courses such as the first year composition courses and an introduction to literature is often a primary mission for English departments on campuses in the United States. One or two semester courses in English composition and in research writing and documentation are commonly offered, often as part of a general education component, to prepare new students for college writing. An introduction to literature is also commonly offered in the general education foundation at many colleges.
