Basic Writing and the Issue of Correctness, or, What To Do with "Mixed" Forms of Academic Discourse.
Bizzell, Patricia
Journal of Basic Writing, v19 n1 p4-12 Spr 2000
Considers the changing definition of "academic discourse" in basic writing instruction. Focuses on preparing students for success in school. Refines positions sketched in an earlier essay. Asserts that new forms of academic discourse mix traditional academic with non-academic discourses, reflecting the profound cultural mixing occurring in the United States. Discusses why this should not be termed "hybrid." (SR)
