Inventing American girlhood : gendered pedagogies in women's memoirs, 1950-1999 by Elizabeth Marshall( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In “Inventing Gendered Childhoods” I examine memoirs written by women in the 1990s who came of age in postwar America in order to trace how girlhood developed as a separate category from childhood. Although girlhood is often posited in scholarship and everyday life as the time-bounded period of adolescence, I argue that it is better understood for the purposes of Education research as a cultural space and identity that girls are compelled to occupy, and in which they are trained through various means. I demonstrate that the meaning of childhood as a gendered experience emerges in a range of cultural locations and institutions, including but not limited to schools. Through memoirs such as Susanna Kaysen's Girl, Interrupted , Dorothy Allison's Two or Three Things I Know For Sure, and bell hooks' Bone Black, women make visible a range of surreptitious cultural lessons and in the process re-read and counter the repressive girl-rearing practices that framed their own coming-of-age. In particular, women memoirists offer alternative pedagogies that blur the line between adulthood and childhood, tutor us about the insufficiency of the time-bound and gendered identities that the school imposes, and finally disperse the work of “pedagogy” throughout the culture. This project contributes to the debates around girls and education by offering an alternative archive for feminist reflections on girls and schools in the form of women's memoir

Extending the Dimensions of Research in Response to Literature: Responsein an Elementary School Setting by Janet Hickman( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An ethnographic study of children's response to literature at a range of developmental levels and in a variety of natural classroom contexts involved comprehensive classroom observations of 90 children aged five to eleven years representing a range of abilities. Data were collected during a four-month period on daily log sheets, then later classified into (1) listening behaviors, (2) contact with books, (3) acting on the impulse to share, (4) oral responses, (5) actions and drama, (6) making things, and (7) writing. Examples of students' responses were compared according to age level differences, and teacher strategies of manipulating contextual settings were categorized. Among the connections identified from the data were that the direct accessibility of a book seemed to be of primary importance in children's willingness to express any response to it at all, and that the most powerful feature of classroom contexts was their manipulation by teachers.
