Fundamental College Composition
Fundamentals of college composition fcc is a compact, college level writing text that presents the underlying grammatical structures of Standard American English in a format that is understandable without prior formal grammar training. Often, strunk and white's Elements of Style ES is used as a companion to these texts.
Fcc coordinates these student-instructor efforts and provides a base of writing information and a spectrum of writing activities that will build tangible writing skills. Twenty first century undergraduates no longer possess those foundations and a text that presumes they do fails despite its distinguished and noble history.
Es is an excellent volume, but it was written in 1908 for a classification of students who possessed solid foundations in formal grammar studies. It avoids every intricacy of grammatical science that does not apply directly and practically to the production of clear, concise sentences and structured paragraphs.
Other disciplines must focus on teaching course content, and have precious little time to devote to improving their undergraduate’s composition skills. Writing, revising and re-writing are obligations placed squarely on the student, deliberate, but they are of little consequence without the pointed, and supportive correction of the instructor.
A popular reaction to the undergraduate writing dilemma has been to institute discipline-specific writing classes. Fcc is designed to address this "grammatical gap. It provides a sub-structure of grammar study sufficient to bring a modern student to a basic understanding of the foundations of compositional language arts.
