Voiced and Voiceless Findings: The Gender Gap in Composition Research.
Greenwood, Claudia M.
Re-entry female students are unique in one particularly important way: they respond and grow under even the most difficult conditions. The classroom and the text are two contexts in which the factor of gender appears to have affected these students' attitudes toward writing and their expectations as writers. Central to both of these contexts are the instructors' attitudes toward the students as well as their expectations for the students' development as writers. Findings on these students and their attitudes toward writing can be categorized into two areas, voiced (stated) findings controlled by the pedagogical focus, and voiceless (unstated) findings eclipsed by the pedagogical focus. Because of these factors, gender-related issues are problematic for researchers in composition, particularly doctoral candidates. (MM)
