Nonrational Classroom Performance: Ritual as an Aspect of Action.
Quantz, Richard A.; Magolda, Peter M.
Urban Review, v29 n4 p221-38 Dec 1997
Uses two classroom examples to develop a conceptualization of ritual as formulated, symbolic performance that may be seen as an aspect of action rather than a type of action. Ritual, found in nearly all classroom activities, helps explain how the most mundane and ordinary activities carry powerful cultural messages. (Author/SLD)
