Irvin Peckham will pose as a problem for discussion the tension in required writing programs over the degree to which writing teachers should be obligated to encourage critical thinking about social problems through having students investigate, argue, and write about them.
He will focus the discussion on the differences in student responses to a critical pedagogy agenda according to their social class origins. He will ask participants to reflect on their own social class positioning and its effect on the way in which they view this question.
