The Boys at the Back: Challenging Masculinities and Homophobia in the English Classroom.Martino, Wayne
Abstract: Presents two critical incidents about boys seated at the back of the classroom. Draws attention to how particular versions of masculinity influence how boys learn to relate and the possibilities for interrogating these kinds of masculinities in the English classroom. Explores what role already existing reading practices within English might play in undertaking this kind of critical practice. (SC)
