Playing in the Gender Transgression Zone: Race, Class and Hegemonic Masculinity in Middle School
Seriously, this is a very good piece for doing fieldwork (taking fieldnotes). Read it if you are Service-Learning
Here is a link to an article by Shawn McGuffy and Lindsay Rich. Service-Learning students may use this as one of their articles for the final paper. You may also find it helpful as they did an ethnographic study of middle school children.
If you can not access the article through the link you should go to the University library open JSTOR and copy the title of the article into the search.
