When Community Fails To Transform: Raveling and Unraveling a "Community of Writers."
Calderwood, Patricia E.
Urban Review, v32 n3 p263-92 Sep 2000
Examines the importance of the notion of community in a remedial writing class at an urban university. Though labeled a "community of writers," the group did not write, and students were considered failed writers. Their story illustrates the high value placed on the notion of community in school, its vulnerable nature, and the fundamental conditions necessary to building its resilience. (SM)
