DeBlase, Gina L.
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v29 n4 p367-79 May 2002
Discusses how social identity plays a significant role in defining the nature of classroom interaction. Describes how unresolved conflict emerged when the development of authentic student voice in narrative autobiography was the primary and perhaps only objective. Presents an example of the ways in which asymmetrical power relations influence how discourse works in the expressionist composition classroom. (SG)
