Teaching Inclusive Generic Pronoun Usage: The Effectiveness of an Authority Innovation-Decision Approach versus an Optional Innovation-Decision Approach.
Flanagan, Anna M.; Todd-Mancillas, William R.
Communication Education, v31 n4 p275-84 Oct 1982
Assessed the effectiveness of two methods for teaching students to write using inclusive generic pronouns. Found that both approaches were effective but that the authority approach (one forced upon an individual) produced more change in pronoun usage than the optional approach (one made by the individual by and for him/herself).
