Abstract

Now in its nineteenth year, the Basic Communication Course Annual continues to serve as an important outlet within the discipline for scholarship related to the way we teach, manage, and evaluate the basic course. Each year the Annual offers some of the best research on basic course pedagogy helping to position it as the primary source for teachers and scholars working to improve the quality of the basic course at their respective institutions. The Annual's success has always been attributed to the community of scholars who continue to support the journal as contributors, editorial board members, and its readership. I wish to thank the efforts of the Annual's previous editors, Deanna Sellnow, Craig Newburger, and Larry Hugenberg. I would especially like to thank Scott Titsworth, whose assistance has been instrumental as I have worked to complete my first issue.
