Teaching about Inequality: Student Resistance, Paralysis, and Rage.
Davis, Nancy J.
Teaching Sociology, v20 n3 p232-38 Jul 1992
Discusses three classroom climates that are often encountered in teaching about inequality and social stratification: resistance, paralysis, and rage. Describes resistance as denying the existence or importance of inequality. Defines paralysis as classes that see little chance of overcoming inequality. Suggests that the enraged class is unable to focus on the complexities of the situation. (DK)
