Fourth, Sixth, and Eighth Graders' Preferred Writing Topics and Identification of Gender Markers in Stories.
Peterson, Shelley
Elementary School Journal, v101 n1 p79-100 Sep 2000
Identified preferred writing topics for 600 students in grades, 4, 6, and 8 and gender markers used to identify authors of 9 stories written by other students. Found that students situated girls' writing within primary territory; viewed girls as more competent, conscientious writers than boys; and associated the presence of violence with male writers. Findings pose implications for teaching. (Author/KB)
