Creating Spaces for Equity? The Role of Positioning in Peer-Led Literature Discussions.
Evans, Karen S.
Language Arts, v73 n3 p194-202 Mar 1996
Presents observations of 15-member literature discussion group in a fifth-grade classroom. Shows that even in such groups, intended to create a more democratic forum where students' voices are heard and valued, factors like gender, cultural background, and status play a role in whose ideas get expressed and are actually listened to.
