Nancy Drew: Girls' Literature, Women's Reading Groups, and the Transmission of Literacy.
Gonzalez, Norma Linda
Journal of Literacy Research, v29 n2 p221-51 Jun 1997
Focuses on a women's reading group that was organized for the purpose of discussing popular books from the Nancy Drew collection. Notes that when the participants were collaborative rather than hierarchical in their discussion stances, they constructed unexpected knowledge and expressed divergent views. Explores the implications of findings for conducting literature discussions in classrooms. (SG)
