The Schoolyard as a Stage: Missing Cultural Clues in Symbolic Fighting

Investigates how social conflict was enacted at one racially diverse, urban middle school. Discusses symbolic fighting, the use of body language, the location of symbolic fighting, and symbolic fighting as a source of transformation, proposing to redefine the socializing role of social conflict in the lives of students and adults in schools. Concludes that school climate can dramatically improve when staff understand the socializing functions of choreographed fighting. (SM)
