Recopying to Revise: Composition in an Old Key
Kratzke, Peter
Composition Studies, v36 n2 p9-22 Fall 2008
This article talks about the "old-school" practice of recopying. For its part in composition, this practice reminds that real literacy is not a technological product, but a cognitive process. In recopying to revise, students learn that almost all good writing is rewriting. Likewise, in recopying, the solitary writer engages in a kind of internal competition, pitting self against subject against audience.
