Learning "Schooled Literacy": The Literate Life Histories of Mainstream Student Readers and Writers.
Evans, Rick
Discourse Processes, v16 n3 p317-40 Jul-Sep 1993
Finds that students understand reading and writing as demonstrations of what they know, with the purpose of giving teachers what they want, and the hope of getting an "A." Shows that they begin to believe themselves so incompetent that they no longer enjoy reading and writing; indeed, they read and write as little as possible. (SR)
