Subject: Re: Teaching freshman comp

What's all that tuition for if not to get some of those highly skilled
people to actually
teach my kids? And why not freshman comp?

You could send your kids to MacMurray College (ahem), where the English
department faculty (ahem) teach freshman comp. . . . of course, we don't have
any graduate students to do it for us.

It is simply not possible to teach 4-5 courses and do anything else at all.

I used to think that way, teaching 4 courses each semester plus one in
January. Then I read in the _ Chronicle of Higher Education_ about a guy who
writes a book every two weeks, and I felt lazy.
