Literacy without "Risk": Reconsidering Cultural and Curricular Differentiation in Literacy.
Brozo, William G.
State of Reading, v2 n2 p5-11 Fall 1995
Suggests that "branding" students "at risk" draws attention away from political, educational, and institutional failures. Describes how a student's at risk status can be reinforced through inadequate literacy instruction. Discusses how a high school teacher reduces the debilitating effects of at risk labeling and curriculum building by creating a classroom world that is "nicer than the outside world." (RS)
