Attack of the Killer Baby Faces: Gender Similarities in Third-Grade Writing.
Language Arts, v74 n2 p116-23 Feb 1997
Discusses how students of both sexes in a third-grade class used popular culture to scaffold their stories--they (1) aimed at audience reaction, often using argument and shock; (2) incorporated their favorite writers and curricular topics into their pieces; and (3) by year's end, merged the talents of both genders into a higher form of literacy.
