TR 17. Written Rhetorical Syntheses
By Margaret Kantz
Summary: Addressing the ways in which college students synthesize source material when they write research papers, Kantz presents case study analyses of the composing processes and written products of three undergraduates, supplemented by quantitative analyses of a group of seventeen undergraduate research papers. From this analysis, she offers a tentative model of a synthesizing process. January, 1989; 26 pages.
