Cultural Dissonance in Basic Writing Courses.
Ybarra, Raul
Journal of Basic Writing, v20 n1 p37-52 Spr 2001
Presents an intensive case study using ethnographic techniques to understand how teaching affects nonmainstream students, particularly Latinos. Suggests that much of the problem is students feeling out of place and notes that the writing teacher's role is finding ways to get students to come to class and motivate them to participate. (SG)
