The Failed Writing Assignment.
Swyt, Wendy
Writing Instructor, v14 n2 p67-75 Win 1995
Discusses an unsuccessful English 101 writing assignment in which students were asked to analyze a Gary Larson cartoon. Examines critically the type of assignment that seeks to address and incorporate the student writer's "local knowledge" of cultural texts, while at the same time containing what counts as knowledge within limited parameters of cultural literacy.
