Brooke Williams January 11, 2008 Eng 101 Sec: 008 Entering the university setting challenges the writing skills of most students. David Bartholomae, the author of Inventing the University , uses rhetorical analysis to demonstrate why most students are viewed as basic writers, not because of sentence error, but due to lack of experience in these communities. Bartholmae believes students write consciously, knowing the intellectual standpoint of their professors. Students have to gain knowledge of the university “language”, hence speaking as a “literary critic one day and an experimental psychologist the next.” (Bartholomae 456)The goal of a basic writer is to write as the reader, subsequently becoming an expert writer. The difference between an expert and basic writer is, expert writers compose their work with readers in mind. Knowing how your reader will respond, will aid in the construction of your writing. “A writer has to “build bridges” between his point of view and his readers.” (Bartholomae #460)
