Critical Literacy and Institutional Language.
Cushman, Ellen
Research in the Teaching of English, v33 n3 p245-74 Feb 1999
Uses activist ethnographic field work to explore institutional language skills used by inner-city residents as they negotiated social services institutions. Shows residents' critical awareness and political acumen as they complied with and resisted the structuring ideology of institutional agents. Raises questions about the methods of key critical pedagogues and the appropriateness of their assumption of false consciousness among disenfranchised people. (SR)
