Soliday, Mary. “From the Margins to the Mainstream: Reconceiving Remediation.” CCC 47.1 (1996): 85-100.
Soliday proposes a “progressive version of mainstreaming” to address a basic writing remedial model entrenched in a system that rewards the labeling of students in efforts to “fix” them. She analyzes her proposed two-semester credit-bearing course “responsive to writers with diverse language and cultural backgrounds” by qualitatively evaluating a basic writing student who takes the course.

Grego, Rhonda and Nancy Thompson. “Repositioning Remediation: Renegotiating Composition’s Work in the Academy.” CCC 47.1 (1996): 62-84.
Grego and Thompson analyze their implementation of a Writing Studio comprised of a small group of students and an instructor as a complement to the required Freshman Composition Course at the University of South Carolina. They use the Studio to reflect how students and composition teachers might jettison the practice of professionalizing writing that uncritically maintains a distinction of basic/normal writers and negates composition as a scholarly enterprise.

Welch argues that student identification with a teacher and a teacher’s model of composition can be complicated by asking students to recognize and revise ideas of what exactly they identify with and what in turn they may be denying, suppressing or perpetrating in the process. Welch recasts the use of a curriculum of writing as therapy arguing that it can complement this revision process by allowing students to identify their transference and challenging teachers to allow written expression of emotion in the composition class as long as such expression is guided by recognition and revision of discourses that inform such expression.

Royster argues that scholarly use of subject position can converge dialectical perspectives, permit interpretation to be “richly informed” and have import for cross-boundary discourse. Subjectivity encourages sensitivity to context and calls for a transformation in theory and practice of scholarship that interrogates notions of voice as skewed toward spoken or written performance. Jones claims voice is constructed visually and orally and “as a phenomenon that has import also in being a thing heard, perceived and reconstructed.”
