Basic Work and Material Acts: The Ironies, Discrepancies, and Disjunctures of Basic Writing and Mainstreaming.
Rodby, Judith; Fox, Tom
Journal of Basic Writing, v19 n1 p84-99 Spr 2000
Discusses principles about writing instruction that emerged from mainstreaming basic writers in first-year composition at California State University, Chico: (1) students learn college writing by being in the context of college writing, not some other context; and (2) literacy learning does not come in discreet levels. Describes how writers in first-year composition are supported through adjunct workshops. (SR)
