"The Dilemma That Still Counts": Basic Writing at a Political Crossroads.
Harrington, Susanmarie; Adler-Kassner, Linda
Journal of Basic Writing, v17 n2 p3-24 Fall 1998
Reviews definitions of basic writers and basic writing over the last 20 years. Argues that basic writers are not defined only in terms of institutional convenience. Offers future directions for basic writing research, suggesting that to learn more about basic writers, researchers must return to studies of error informed by basic writing's rich traditions of cognitive and cultural research.
