Jacobs-Huey, Lanita
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v34 n3 p277-299 Sep 2003
Examined classroom discourse at a southern cosmetology school, noting African American students' language socialization. Highlighted freshmen's and seniors' engagement with formal/textbook scripts about proper communication, analyzing how teachers and students made sense of official metacommunicative scripts about proper salon communication. Results explained how students' language learning was inspired by the broader cultural and communal contexts in which they and other African American hair care practitioners and clients were situated.
