Can Cross-Disciplinary Links Help Us Teach "Academic Discourse" in FYC?
Wardle, Elizabeth A.
Across the Disciplines, v1 Jul 2004
Drawing on an activity theory analysis, Elizabeth A. Wardle considers whether cross-disciplinary FYC collaborations can help us achieve current FYC goals. Her analysis of learning community linked FYC courses at a large Midwestern university suggests that learning community teachers are faced with as many--if not more--challenges as traditional FYC teachers when asked to prepare their students for academic discourses.
