In this article, Mlynarczyk traces her career-long exploration of the relationship between personal, narrative writing and so-called academic discourse.

Lin, Ching Ching – Journal of Basic Writing, 2014
Bakhtin's dialogism provides a sociocultural approach that views language as a social practice informed by the complex interaction between discourse and meaning. Drawing on this theoretical framework, I argue that a dialogized version of storytelling can be helpful in creating a reflective form of academic discourse that bridges the gap between…

Ellis, David; Murtha, Megan – Journal of Basic Writing, 2014
Many first-year students struggle with the transition from high school writing to college writing as higher-order demands are made and new discipline-specific genres are added.

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.
