The Shaming Game: Composition Pedagogy and Emotion.
Writing on the Edge, v7 n1 p56-72 Fall-Win 1995
Explores how shaming rituals and shame responses define the pedagogical scene portrayed in William Coles, Jr.'s novelistic account of a semester-long freshman English writing course, "The Plural I--and After." Argues that this novel does not fully embrace the vexing trope of the hero quest present in most other ethnographic research on composition teaching. (TB)
