Pfefferle to be published Tekisha Slack Staff writer Dr. W. T. Pfefferle, English pro- fessor, has written a textbook that will be used in English composition classes. Pfefferle, who said he did not like any of the books being used in his classrooms, said the books he used in the past were a little intimi- dating to students. Among many of the problems with most English texts, according to Pfefferle, they are too big for the student's use, which means most of the book will go unused during the course of the semester. He said only about 25-40 percent of most English books are used during a semester. Pfefferle's book, "Writing that Matters: A Rhetoric for the New Classroom," is different, he said, in that it is a more intimate approach to teaching students how to write. Pfefferle said, the language is appro- priate for the instructor and the writer with just the right amount of information. Not just something that will get the students through 15 weeks of class."
