Playing the Game: Proficient Working-Class Student Writers' Second Voices.
Ashley, Hannah
Research in the Teaching of English, v35 n4 p493-524 May 2001
Conducts case studies of proficient undergraduate writers from working-class backgrounds in the context of a course preparing sophomore and junior students to be tutors for first-year basic writers. Finds that students explained their experiences suggesting a greater degree of agency, an awareness of themselves as writers in a "contact zone," and a stance of tricking teachers while producing acceptable texts.
