Basic Writers and Reading

Question: Why include readings in the basic writing course?

Answer: The students should read at least one book in the course. That book should become a source for quotes and bibliographic entry that would be an introduction to the research paper.

One suggestion from a survey recommended that the teacher assign a book that the teacher has enjoyed.

Comment: A good idea for introducing the research paper at any level. Would enable the teacher to focus on the basics of attribution, direct quotes, indirect quotes, and bibliographic entry. etc. RayS.
