Opinion: Teaching Bartleby to Write--Passive Resistance and Technology's Place in the Composition Classroom
Palmerino, Gregory
College English, v73 n3 p283-302 Jan 2011
Drawing on the case of a student of his who, like Herman Melville's Bartleby, simply preferred not to write, the author argues that current celebration of technology encourages passive resistance. He emphasizes that authentic, productive classroom experiences derive from in-person interactions that directly connect in relevant ways to students' lives.
