A Discourse-Based Theory of Interdisciplinary Connections
Nowacek, Rebecca S.
Journal of General Education, v54 n3 p171-195 2005
Working inductively from classroom research and guided by a Bakhtinian view of language, the author proposes a discourse-based theory of interdisciplinary connections. The article includes examples of four discursive resources individuals draw on to make interdisciplinary connections--content, propositions, ways of knowing, and classroom genres--with special focus on genres. (Contains 2 notes.)
