Academic Discourse and Critical Consciousnes traces the attempts of one writing teacher to understand theoretically -  and to respond pedagogically - to what happens when students from diverse backgrounds learn to use language in college.  Critical of even her own previous work, Patricia Bizzell presents a picture of how she has grappled with major issues in composition studies over the past decade and offers suggestions for the development of composition studies as an academic discipline.
