Breaking Down Gender Barriers: Theories into Practice.
Stieve, Edwin
Breaking down gender barriers in composition and literature classrooms suggests that teachers rethink the forms of writing they demand of their students (e.g., argumentation and exposition) and that they encourage a wide range of approaches which account for gender-specific modes of writing and interpreting texts. Various writing assignments such as autobiography or business narratives can help students understand "ways of knowing" outside the often patriarchal hierarchy of corporations. Women's ways of knowing have not only helped expand the canon, they have helped to expand thinking about pedagogy, writing assignments, and about the roles of students and instructors themselves inside and outside the writing classroom.
