Personal Writing in the Composition Class: When the Personal Is Dangerously Political.
Wershoven, Carol
Writing Instructor, v11 n1 p31-37 Fall 1991
Notes that personal writing continues to proliferate, especially in freshman composition and basic writing courses. Argues that overemphasis on personal writing, on finding a "voice," may become exclusionary rather than liberating. Argues that it is crucial to teach students how to read, react to, and write about anything beyond the self. (RS)
