Portraits and possibilities: Empowerment through literacy.
In Dr. M. Miller & Dr. K. P. King (eds.) Empowering women in literacy: Views from experience. Information Age Publishing, 2009.

Raising student voices begins with letting them take authority of their own life stories: becoming aware of the powers they have to define their own reality and tell their lives, valuing themselves and their experiences, dreaming and expecting better. One of the ways we work together toward these goals is through self-portraiture: different ways by which our class participants present and represent themselves and their experiences in writing and in art.
