First Contact: Composition Students' Close Encounters with College Culture.
Beauvais, Paul Jude
Journal of Teaching Writing, v15 n1 p25-49 1996
Demonstrates that the first-year composition class can be a particularly important contact zone in that it can serve as an arena for exploring the pedagogical value of several types of first contacts that new students experience in the other contact zones of the university. Analyzes student papers to illustrate how students discover the social power of their discourse. (TB)
