Summary
In this ethnographic research, the author uncovers the hidden abuses and violence that adolescents deal with each school day and how they use writing as a way to cope. In two different research sites, the author follows adolescents through their academic and personal lives to discover how they use writing to uncover the impact, public and private, violence has had upon their ability to learn. The author details writing classroom practices and assignments, and reveals how adolescents adapt, reconstruct, and appropriate the lessons of the classroom for their purposes and needs. For the adolescents in the book, writing is a way to address the stresses that plagued them each day, especially when they have no other way to communicate their lived experiences. -- Back Cover
