Berger, Linda L.
Journal of Legal Education, v49 n2 p155-84 Jun 1999

Notes that the new rhetoric posits that writing is a process of constructing thought and describes selected teaching practices within the reader-writer loop, including reading and writing reflectively, planning in writing, and using the peer group for feedback.
