Us and Them: Joyce Carol Oates and the Stories Students Tell
DeGenaro, William
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v34 n4 p380-393 May 2007
Responding with strategic empathy to the traumatic stories students share with us provides an opportunity to break down an elitist binary between teacher and student. Joyce Carol Oates's novel "them" can serve as a cautionary tale for understanding the dangers of disregarding student trauma. (Contains 2 notes.)
