"Our goal should be to help students successfully write in the academy; to the extent they have the power and authority to change academic genres to better meet their needs, we should help them understand how to do so. But we must also be realistic about how much power students have to change those genres, and we must be certain that our analytical genre work will help them succeed, not paralyze them with doubts" (783)

--Elizabeth Wardle, "'Mutt Genres' and the Goal of FYC: Can We Help Students Write the Genres of the University?"
