(Re)Writing Youth: Basic Writing, Youth Culture, and Social Change.
Grobman, Laurie
Journal of Basic Writing, v20 n1 p5-26 Spr 2001
Examines the ways in which students in basic writing respond to rhetorical constructions of their generation. Argues that compositionists' efforts to intervene and mediate society's conception of youth are complicated by students' simultaneous acceptance and rejection of these representations. Explores the subsequent implications for students' and teachers' responsibility and complicity in society's "demonization" of young people. (SG)
