"I Think I Know What My Teachers Want Now": Gender and Writing Motivation.
Cleary, Linda Miller
English Journal, v85 n1 p50-57 Jan 1996
Investigates a gender-related issue raised by a 1990 study of 40 11th-grade writing students. Discusses what problems are posed by and what possible solutions there are to the tendency in young women writers--more pronounced than in their male counterparts--to please the teacher and meet his or her rhetorical expectations at the expense of personal satisfaction.
