From cheap labor to junior colleague: Training TAs in composition
An emerging field of interest within English education is the training of teaching assistants (TAs) in freshman composition programs.

The pattern is changing, however, and today few English departments put completely inexperienced graduate students in front of a class. This report will offer brief descriptions of several current approaches to training TAs, as represented in documents included in the ERIC system
