"We Call Him Dr. King": Reciprocal Distancing In Urban Classrooms.
Irvine, Patricia D.; Larson, Joanne
Language Arts, v76 n5 p393-400 May 1999
Presents examples of discourse in classroom interaction that show how social relations in the classroom mirror larger societal relationships in ways that exclude students' cultural and linguistic practices as resources for meaningful literacy learning. Shows how this discourse process (called reciprocal distancing) is used by teachers and students to reinforce sociocultural distances, and notes how literacy learning is affected. (SR)
