Resistance and Response: Deconstructing Community Standards in a Literature Class.
Pace, Barbara G.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v46 n5 p408-12 Feb 2003
Considers how student resistance to literary characters who violate stereotypes can shape the meanings constructed within the interpretive community of the classroom. Concludes that because negative student responses can limit the potential of literature to illuminate human experiences, they must become a formal part of the curriculum, another text that students investigate in the literature classroom.
