Nuts and bolts: a practical guide to teaching college composition
In "Nuts & Bolts," editor Thomas Newkirk details the evolution of the University of New Hampshire's writing program, drawing heavily from the oral culture -- or "lore" -- of the program. Then seven experienced practitioners contribute chapters dealing with the issues that beginning writing teachers often struggle with:
"Nuts & Bolts" deals with these questions in a lucid, jargon-free, and specific way. While filled with examples of student work and classroom exercises, it is more than a sampler of things that "work." Each contributor is careful to show how classroom work comes out of careful thinking about course objectives; readers are invited to eavesdrop on this decision making process.
An unabashedly practical book, "Nuts & Bolts" will be the single most useful book a college writing teacher could own.

Review: Nuts & Bolts: A Practical Guide to Teaching College CompositionUser Review - Alissa Wilkinson - Goodreads
Quite a useful book, actually - mostly for the newbie, but I would imagine that the seasoned teacher might find something here. There are lots of actual practical suggestions for teaching revision, grammar, topics, and a lot more. I plan to return to it over and over again. Read full review
