Piro, Vincent P.
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v21 n2 p114-19 May 1994
Describes a many-faceted class activity involving readings, small group and class discussions, and writing an essay. Notes that, in the essay, the students first think and write about the names people have called them and/or their culture and then rename themselves, thereby gaining personal and political power.
