Playing by Different Rules: "Gender Switching" and Critical Pedagogy.
Martin, Amy Ward
Writing On the Edge, v12 n1 p78-86 Fall-Win 2000-2001
Considers whether gender is significant in determining teachers' versions of critical pedagogy. Contends that in the academy, women have not had much of a choice but to be adversarial, particularly in the "feminized" field of composition and rhetoric. Concludes that by confronting students as equals rather than adversaries, educators open themselves up to the possibility of re-examining and learning about themselves and their pedagogical methods.
