I'd be interested to hear about backgrounds of other FYC teachers(lit, rhet/comp, or other) and how you think yr background affects yr teaching methods, assumptions, etc. What's the picture generally at yr CC? To what degree do you think rhet/comp the preferred background?


The data she mentioned about teacher backgrounds and the things people from certain backgrounds tend to emphasize sound about right for the places I teach: I'm a rarity for having comp/rhet training, but it is something the institutions are looking for in full-time faculty candidates. I wondered how tech/professional writing training was classified because that's a big part of my training, also.


I saw that you have a page that discusses patent-related resources at I wanted to suggest adding to the page. This web site has free PDF downloading (instead of having to page through TIFFs like at the US PTO). It is by far the best free patent searching site.
