Dutro, Elizabeth
Reading Teacher, v55 n4 p376-84 Dec-Jan 2001-2002
Discusses research the author undertook with a class of fifth graders, in which they read and discussed popular series books. Shares examples of their talk about the topic and what that talk reveals about the potential of the classroom as a space to reveal, complicate, and challenge gendered assumptions about what is desirable or appropriate reading for boys and girls.
