Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Portfolios and the Reflections of Young Adolescent Girls.
Spalding, Elizabeth; Ziff, Jackie
Research in Middle Level Education Quarterly, v20 n4 p57-75 Sum 1997
Examined the reflective writing in English language arts portfolios of 11 young adolescent girls attending an alternative, single-sex school. Found that girls often distorted their literacy accomplishments and disclaimed and devalued their achievements. They tended to silence themselves, use literacy to stay connected to family and friends, and resist pressure to fit in by avoiding notice. (Author/KB)
