Many students arrive on campus underprepared to do any sort of writing, let alone collegiate-level academic writing.
Because the teaching of writing is labor-intensive and demands relatively small class sizes — commenting meaningfully on long student papers is incredibly time-consuming — writing instruction has been farmed out to adjuncts far more than has instruction in most disciplines.
Often the opinions on student writing and writing instruction that I hear take the form of criticism of both student writers and of university writing instruction/instructors.
To be fair, there is plenty to criticize, beginning with the current culture of high-stakes testing in high schools that either eliminates writing instruction altogether or frequently reduces writing to rote formulas.
Introduction Duties and Responsibilities of a Student Life is short, but art is long. So, student life is considered as the most important part. But if we want to give a special definition, we can say that, the part of life, which are sending to acquire knowledge in specific subject in our school, college and Universities can be called as a student life. Middle He should read novels, articles, newspapers etc. He mustn't do any kind of insulting activities towards them.
According to fulfill all the works, a man must take the best preparation before beginning and student life is the part of life, when a person can take the preparation. Besides he must perform extracurricular activities, such as- singing, dancing, debating, etc. A student must maintain a sound body in order to maintain a sound health. To a student, his teachers are the most respectful persons after his parents. Though, student life has lots of duties and responsibilities, it is the most enjoyable part of life.So perhaps instituting a mandatory service for graduation program would do more than simply give the students something nice to go on their resumes – but perhaps it would also aid them in deciding on a major or even a career.In other words, it would help ensure their future once they're out of college and into the “real world.” Such programs are already in place in many institutes of higher education, and even in high schools.This is the problem that Dave Eggers postulates a way of solving in his essay Serve Or Fail.Eggers' idea of making public service volunteering a mandatory part of your college education is brilliant and would no doubt aid in many areas of College student's lives.Eggers says, “...while colleges give their students the intellectual tools for life beyond campus, they largely ignore the part about how they might contribute to the world.That is, until the commencement speech, at which time all the “go forth's” and “be helpful's” happen” (585).The average college stereotype is kids who spend too much money, drink too much booze, and party too hard.While this isn't true of all college students, as many work very hard to get good grades, get degrees, and have a life, it's true of enough of them that the stereotype does prove itself true quite often.I’d like to offer some ideas, derived both from current research on the teaching of writing and my own experience, for how all faculty members can help students to improve their writing skills.Here are some ideas for how to support and improve student writing on your own campus, starting in your own classroom: We need to remember that writing instruction is everyone’s responsibility.
