Welcome to the University of Louisville Composition Program. We are committed to teaching students to become more creative and critical writers and readers. Our writing courses are our opportunity to help students develop their writing as a way of thinking, learning, and communicating in ways that will enrich their lives in the University community and beyond.

The Composition Program is also committed to providing instructors with the support and materials to allow them to become the most effective teachers and scholars possible. We do not work from a single syllabus or textbook. Instead we believe that the strength of the program comes from the creativity of individuals engaging in thoughtful, reflexive teaching practices. Toward that end we provide professional development in the form of periodic teacher workshops, online resources such as E-Files, and the Bonnie Endowment Library of books on literacy, rhetoric, and teaching writing.

We are here to help you in any way possible. Please don’t hesitate to talk with any of us about any question, problem, idea, or suggestion you have. We are proud of our teachers and program. We hope this year will be productive and enjoyable for you and your students.

We do not work from a single syllabus or textbook. Instead we believe that the strength of the program comes from the creativity of individuals engaging in thoughtful, reflexive teaching practices. The entire program benefits when individual teachers have the freedom to attempt innovative practices and assignments, and then share those successful innovations with their colleagues.  Instructors teaching for the first time and enrolled in English 602 will follow the common syllabus.

We want students to consider how best to establish an authorial position in any piece of writing and whether including writing from experience will best help communicate their ideas. The answer to the second question of whether such writing is required, however, is no. Instructors are not required to create assignments that include explicitly personal writing.

Yes. There is a strong commitment in this program to individual writing conferences. We believe that the kind of individual response and dialogue that takes place in a writing conference is simply not replicable in written responses on student essays. It is important to be able to talk with students about their writing and their writing processes. It is also important that the writing conference be a true dialogue, not just a mini-lecture to the student about the mistakes in the paper. The purpose of a writing conference is for the student to begin to identify the places a paper needs work, to become a more reflective and effective writer.
