    These principles included assuming all students are capable of learning, engage students in student-centered work, address “higher order” issues alongside “lower-ordered” issues, integrate academic writing and reading instruction, and embrace the conflict between what they already know and what they need to learn (21). Mutnick and Lamos suggest that there are four major basic writer pedagogical approaches that go with theoretical changes since its conception. One of the four approaches is error centered, which is based on Shaughnessy’s theory of the logic of errors. They focus on the student’s errors he/she produces, view Standard Written English as “normative and neutral rather than ideological and culturally biased” and are still used to help students learn grammar conventions (22). Secondly, Academic-initiation approaches integrate reading and writing, hold basic writer students to the same expectations as “regular” students, defined by discourse theories rather than cognitive view of error, have a three-step process of comprehension, interpretation, and application, and Bartholomae’s theory of academic socialization underlies these approaches.
