Writing and Rewriting Racism: From the Dorm to the Classroom to the Dustbowl.
Paley, Karen Surman
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v16 n2 p285-96 1996
Describes a classroom experience in which the curriculum, committed to helping students use language to criticize and change their social world, gained validity and vitality because of the allegedly racist social climate on campus. Argues against those, such as Susan Miller, who essentialize expressivist pedagogies that are grounded in experience-based writing. (TB)
