Where the Cultures of Basic Writers and Academia Intersect: Cultivating the Common Ground.
Severino, Carol
Journal of Basic Writing, v11 n1 p4-15 Spr 1992
Suggests that educators have overemphasized the distinction between basic writers and academic culture while failing to underscore common ground between the two. Discusses the use of transportation and in-group metaphors that highlight differences between the groups. Identifies journalistic reading and positive high school writing experience as areas that overlap between the two cultures. (SG)
