Hendricks, Monica; Quinn, Lynn
Teaching in Higher Education, v5 n4 p447-57 2000
Studied how college students acquire academic literacy through their writing. Findings for six South African students for whom English was a second language show the difficulties students have in using their own words and in distinguishing different voices in writing. Explicit assistance from lecturers was found to assist students in understanding how knowledge is constructed at the university. (SLD)
