The Writing on the Wall: Attending to Self-Motivated Student Literacies.
Weinstein, Susan
English Education, v35 n1 p21-45 Oct 2002
Explores the role that tagging (a simple form of graffiti) plays around the school and community. Argues that even the writing of a name on a wall opens out into a rich discourse community, in which taggers carry on complex conversations, negotiate and challenge shared discursive norms, and develop identities that are intimately connected to a specific communicative world.
