The Academic Language Gap.
Clearing House, v72 n3 p140-42 Jan-Feb 1999
Discusses reasons for the deep resistance students feel about assuming the role of self-conscious intellectualizer and contentious argument-maker that is demanded by academic courses. Argues that educators will miss the point if, in their dwelling on texts, canons, and political philosophies, they ignore or romanticize this resistance. (SR)
