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. To make this argument, I focus on a multilingual writer named Tejada, who reveals how she had internalized a racialized stereotypical discourse about herself as a minority--a discourse…

Fox, Tom – Journal of Basic Writing, 2015
David Bleich's exploration of language conflicts in the university in "The Materiality of Language: Gender, Politics, and the University" helps explain the ongoing struggle over basic writing as between two radically different understandings of language.

Villanueva, Victor – Journal of Basic Writing, 2013
What follows is a simple assertion: time for basic writing to get out from under, a call for us to inculcate a Basic Writing Across the Curriculum. It is time yet again to move away from the concept that basic writers are in need of remedies, in part because all composition courses are in some sense remedial, and to a greater degree because the…

Lamos, Steve – Journal of Basic Writing, 2012
This essay looks to Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) for strategies that can be implemented in order to combat contemporary neoliberal attacks against the programmatic and institutional spaces of basic writing within Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs).

Otte, George; Mlynarczyk, Rebecca Williams – Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), 2010
In this article, we assess the status of basic writing early in the twenty-first century. Beginning with a discussion of the attacks on BW that intensified during the 1990s and early 2000s--attacks that originated from such diverse sources as state legislatures, university officials, and BW scholars themselves--we go on to summarize the responses…

Stine, Linda J. – Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), 2010
Remarkably little has been published on what works or does not work in online basic writing (BW) instruction. Internet-based learning is not a natural fit for BW students, and instructors planning hybrid or distance learning courses face a difficult task, with little theory to guide them. This article reviews current research and advice on three…

Yood, Jessica – Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), 2005
Because the writing-process movement has been deemed our field's founding "paradigm"--at least since Hairston's 1982 essay declared it so--"process" has remained stuck in the philosophical and historical assumptions of a "paradigm." The paradigm theory, has, from its first associations with composition, offered a view of change wholly unsuited to…

Ryden, Wendy – Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), 2005
Literacy narratives have been pedagogically important in writing instruction, particularly in the basic writing class, as a means for students to interrogate the politics of language and education and thus to establish a critical connection to writing. But the literacy narrative as a critical genre is problematic. Such narratives often are…

Del Principe, Ann – Journal of Basic Writing, 2004
Although basic writing has become a strong independent field with professionally sanctioned ways of making knowledge, what Stephen North refers to as "lore" still maintains a strong foundation in the field. This lore is often grounded in the belief in a linear paradigm of learning, and is to some degree fostered by traditional conceptions of basic…

Maher, Jane – Journal of Basic Writing, 2004
Although much has been written recently about prison "writing" in general (Wally Lamb's Couldn't Keep It to Myself, Mark Salzman's True Notebooks), far less has been written about the efforts and challenges involved in helping prisoners. In this case, females in a maximum-security prison in Westchester County, New York, learn the kind of writing…

Pavia, Catherine Matthews – Journal of Basic Writing, 2004
I conducted teacher research in a basic writing computer classroom to discover what two basic writers brought to the computer classroom that could complicate their interactions with technology and their ability to write with computers during our class. My discussion is twofold: First, I explore the writers' differing attitudes towards computers,…

Kenkel, James; Yates, Robert – Journal of Basic Writing, 2003
Presents a developmental perspective on text construction, understood as managing information within and across sentence boundaries. Claims that the systematicity in non-standard constructions in basic writer's texts reflects student awareness of three obligatory areas of information management in texts: topic management, reference tracking, and…

Gray-Rosendale, Laura; Bird, Loyola K.; Bullock, Judith F. – Journal of Basic Writing, 2003
Contends that Native American students have too often been marginalized in Basic Writing research. Notes that educators must work against invisibility of Native American students as well as a collective lack of knowledge about how the cultural functions of tribal life impact writing skills. Concludes with tentative suggestions for future research…
