Gordon, Erick; McKibbin, Kerry; Vasudevan, Lalitha; Vinz, Ruth
English Education, v39 n4 p326-351 Jul 2007
In this tale of a single event told from the perspectives of multiple narrators, Erick Gordon, Kerry McKibbin, Lalitha Vasudevan, and Ruth Vinz write about their work together on a Student Press Initiative (SPI) writing project at Horizon Academy, the Department of Correction/Department of Education high school at Rikers Island Jail in New York City. They focus on an incident that troubles them and makes them rethink the very foundations of their project. (Contains 1 note.)
