"I'm the Author of This Paper": Collaboration and the Construct of Authorship in a First-Year English Course
Stratman, Jacob; Van Zee, Matthew
CEA Forum, v37 n2 Sum-Fall 2008
It is the scope of this article to present a theoretical framework for successful collaboration and our ideas on how it might be implemented in a first-year college composition classroom. We began by creating a collaborative assignment for our composition classes based on a very cursory understanding of successful collaboration. In light of this experience and our exploration of the theory, we argue that collaboration can be effective in the freshman writing course; however, conventions of successful collaboration must be taught and not just assigned. This article offers a means of doing just that.
