Going Around in Circles: Methodological Issues in Basic Writing Research.
DeGenaro, William; White, Edward M.
Journal of Basic Writing, v19 n1 p22-35 Spr 2000
Analyzes methodologies used by those embroiled in the "mainstreaming debate" (whether a basic writing curriculum is the best way to help entering college students). Finds methodological confusion leading to monologues going in circles rather than constructive dialectic. Argues that researchers ought to consider the evidence and arguments of those using a variety of approaches to research. (SR)
