Drawing on SCT, this collaborative self-study…

O'Sullivan Sachar, Cassandra – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2020

Caouette, Becky L. – Journal of Basic Writing, 2019
The author argues that significant inroads in the destigmatization of basic writing courses and students can be made when students are asked to choose not only which FYW course they believe best meets their needs (directed self-placement, or DSP) but also to choose from among a variety of courses (including corequisite courses, particularly those…

Many developmental writing courses in colleges focus on teaching students isolated skills, with little emphasis on how such skills are applicable to the actual process of writing. This article focuses on capturing the perspectives of students enrolled in a developmental writing course designed around an explicit process-oriented pedagogy. The…

Basic writing, which developed as a field within the larger discipline of rhetoric and composition, has a tumultuous past and an uncertain future.

Stanley, Sarah – Journal of Basic Writing, 2018
Against a Racial Real backdrop, I argue for consciously adopting a sociocultural approach to style in linguistically and racially diverse Basic Writing classrooms.
