TR 44. Remediation as Social Construct: Perspectives from an Analysis of Classroom Discourse

By Marisa Castellano, Kay Losey Fraser, Glynda Hull, Mike Rose

Summary: This paper examines remediation as a social construct, as the product of assumptions, perceptions, and beliefs about literacy and learning. The authors illustrate some ways in which notions of learners as remedial, as deficient, can be created and played out in the classroom. They look closely at one college student and detail the interactional processes by which she is being defined as remedial. February, 1991; 30 pages.
