Abstract

A new teaching assistant in our department recently showed me an outline for a proposed research paper from one of her first-year composition students: "I thought he was going to investigate racial profiling in the aftermath of Sept. 11th," the dismayed instructor said to me. "But this disturbs me. He is going to argue in favor of it. I am struggling with what to do. Do I let him write this paper?"
