Democratizing Conversations: Racialized Talk in a Post-Desegregated Middle School.
Schultz, Katherine; Buck, Patricia; Niesz, Tricia
American Educational Research Journal, v37 n1 p33-65 Spr 2000
Uses data from 30 focus groups from a qualitative study of middle school students' experiences of race to show two distinctive types of conversations about race in a multiracial context: (1) "bridging talk" that builds unity and (2) discourse that creates borders and conflict. A third form, "democratic conversations," promoted by educators is offered for consideration. (SLD)
