First Year Student Essays in Humanities and Social Sciences: The Need for New Paradigms.
Lukeman, Howard
Education in Rural Australia, v2 n2 p37-40 1992
Analysis of essays by first-year college students on humanities and social science subjects suggests that problems in style and structure stem from student misunderstandings of discipline-specific assumptions and conventions concerning critical analysis and "argument." Discussions and models can help students create new, academically acceptable paradigms of analytical thinking and writing. (SV)
