"When We Remix...We Remake!!!" Reflections on Collaborative Ethnography, the New Digital Ethic, and Test Prep
Leary, Chris
Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), v26 n1 p88-105 Spr 2007
This article describes two very different projects undertaken in the same basic writing course: collaborative ethnography and ACT test prep. At first glance, it appears that the work on collaborative ethnography accomplished our goal of creating better, more self-conscious writers while the work on test prep achieved our goal of creating better written products: essays that pass the standardized test. However, that interpretation ignores the powerful interaction between these two elements of the course and how each served as the context of the other.
