"A String of Textbooks": Artifacts of Composition Pedagogy in Indian Boarding Schools.
Miranda, Deborah A.
Journal of Teaching Writing, v16 n2 p213-32 1998
Argues that the teaching of composition in Indian boarding schools, through the combination of textbooks, pedagogical philosophy, and historically-generated pedagogical emphasis on industrial/domestic training, created a situation in which the writing was intended not to assist Indians in becoming "civilized" but to aid in the erasure of Indian presence and voice in a literate, consequential dialogue.
