Example text

As you can imagine, however, it does not do so without some tension. After all, consider immediately the differences between talk among teachers in the faculty lounge and talk between teachers and students in conferences. " But our desire to meet on more equal ground with our students muffles the sound. For example, Murray goes on to say: "At times, of course, they will be teacher and student, master and apprentice, if you want, but most of the time they will be remarkably close to peers, because each writer, no matter how experienced, begins again with each draft" (1985).

What seemed perfectly natural, woven tapestry-like into the fabric of the first conference, was the fraternity jousting that formed a backdrop for the control Dr. B. had of my paper, my physical space, my words. It also seemed natural at the time of the second conference that I would be writing persona poems in which I adopted the voice of a man, and that the professor would tell me how men thought even in a poem about my own sexual experience. These are aspects of conferencing that I can interrogate, things I am now sensitive to and conscious of.

For me, this is the beginning of a dialogue on an important issue. I have in the past been afraid to ask some of my questions about conferencing and teaching, as I know my colleagues have been. If it's true that much of what goes on in our classrooms is hidden except for the occasional required observation by a peer or administrator and what we choose to share with colleagues, then practically all of what goes on in conferences is also hidden, private. Most of what we have learned or "know" about conferencing has gone unquestioned, unexamined, for it is presented as such a simple part of teaching practice that the least able of us should be able to do well.
