The Ethics of Researching Composition Students and Their Work.
Hood, Carra Leah
Writing On the Edge, v13 n2 p56-66 Spr 2003
Scrutinizes the Conference on College Composition and Communication ethics committee's adoption of the rhetoric of ethics to discuss a research situation comparable to one formerly standard in anthropology and psychology, which professional committees in both fields now consider unethical. Suggests that the use of students as the object of interpretation can simply not be considered ethical in composition research. (SG)
