Mahar, Donna
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v45 n3 p200-09 Nov 2001
Considers how adolescent discourse patterns outside of school can illuminate the stance students take in the classroom. Presents a narrative of two seventh-grade students, both marginalized by the academic and social aspects of school. Notes how in attempts to be accepted, both boys used the power of language to establish a dominant stance in the middle school status structure. (SG)
