Official Feasts and Carnivals: Student Writing and Public Ritual.
Heilker, Paul
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v29 n1 p77-84 Sep 2001
Considers how students' texts are rituals that should both sanction existing truths and consecrate inventive freedom. Notes that in teaching writing, educators limit students' development by training them to practice only one kind of public ritual: the "official feast" of thesis-and-support writing. (SG)
