From the Margins at the Center: Literacy, Authority, and the Great Divide.
Branch, Kirk
College Composition and Communication, v50 n2 p206-31 Dec 1998
Examines differences between autonomous and ideological approaches to literacy, especially in terms of teacher/student relationships. Discusses how adult students at a local community literacy center resisted the traditional relationship with classroom authority (by limiting the author's authority as a teacher, in part claiming it for themselves) as a way of rejecting the literate/illiterate dichotomy of the "autonomous" perspective.
