Addresses how mentoring relationships in physics work to teach composing in advanced academic contexts and what can make them more or less effective. Identifies and discusses three factors that may constrain situated learning: newcomer's existing skills, the implicitness of situated learning, and the location and distribution of authority in practitioner/newcomer relationships.
