Virtual Voices in "Letters Across Cultures": Listening for Race, Class, and Gender.
Hill, Elaine N.; Whitaker, Elaine E.
Computers and Composition, v15 n3 p331-46 1998
Describes a "Letters Across Cultures" project that paired high school seniors with new college students in an e-mail exchange. Notes that, although students were to explore cultural differences between high school and college life, what arose was a series of cross cultural and other "misconducts" illustrating ways students relied upon stereotypes to shape their understandings. Explains pitfalls and suggests improvements. (SR)
