Misreading Masculinity: Speculations on the Great Gender Gap in Writing.
Newkirk, Thomas
Language Arts, v77 n4 p294-300 Mar 2000
Summarizes research on gender differences in writing, and challenges readers to reconsider how these are understood. Looks at the use of violence and humor versus sincerity in boys' writing. Argues that, rather than seeing these differences as deficits, the cultural materials boys bring to the classroom should be acknowledged and engaged. (SR)
