Constructing Meaning in the Disciplines: Reconceptualizing Writing across the Curriculum as Composing across the Curriculum.
Smagorinsky, Peter
American Journal of Education, v103 n2 p160-84 Feb 1995
Analyzes the appropriateness of textual media in the construction of meaning by reviewing the psychological research on semiotics and multiple intelligences that support a broadened notion of text, and presenting findings from research on the construction of nonprint texts in disciplines other than English. It suggests that exclusively focusing on writing limits students' development of conceptual knowledge. (GR)
