National Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy Technical Report    

TR 29. Negotiating Academic Discourse

By Linda Flower

Summary: Academic writing is both a cognitive and social process guided by strategic knowledge--the goals writers set based on their reading of the context, the strategies they invoke, and their awareness of both these processes. This report discusses the difficulties experienced by many college freshmen as they seek to negotiate the transition from a writing process based on comprehension and response to a more fully rhetorical, constructive process. May, 1989; 43 pages.
