Hindman, Jane E.
Journal of Basic Writing, v18 n2 p23-46 Fall 1999
Claims compositionists misrecognize stylistic and institutionalized conventions of academic discourse in their own rhetoric and in the evaluation of their students. Argues that students should be included in the practices by which compositionists "normalize" these conventions. Suggests how students might be included in the evaluative practices, and discusses the successful results of one such effort. (NH)
