Description

In Persons in Process, the authors follow four students during their years at a large, public university. The case studies are based on extensive interviews with each student, analyses of their writing for composition and other courses, classroom observations, and interviews with their teachers. Based on their findings, the authors provide insight into the ways that students' academic and personal uses of writing reflect each other, as well as ways that, in responding to students’ writing, teachers can help as well as hinder these interrelated developmental processes.
