Genderlects: Girl Talk and Boy Talk in a Middle-Years Classroom.
Blair, Heather A.
Language Arts, v77 n4 p315-23 Mar 2000
Explores the gendered nature of talk in one multicultural, eighth-grade classroom, discussing how talk is an integral part of engendering. Looks at how the genderlects "Boy Talk" and "Girl Talk" contributed to classroom inequities. Offers suggestions to teachers for ways to validate and utilize the girls' discourse practices to their advantage, rather than detriment, in gender-balanced language arts classrooms. (SR)
