Haswell, Richard H.; Briggs, Terri L.; Fay, Jennifer A.; Gillen, Norman K.; Harrill, Rob; Shupala, Andrew M.; Trevino, Sylvia S.
Written Communication, v16 n1 p3-27 Jan 1999
Replicates C. Haas and L. Flower's 1988 think-allowed reading study. Finds that, when reading a passage on a topic more familiar to first-year students, the undergraduates generated substantially more rhetorical comments than they did with the Haas and Flower passage. Cautions researchers and teachers to avoid hasty assumptions about underlying language competence without considering contextual factors. (SR)
