dc.description.abstractFor this poststructural study, the researcher focused on classroom discussions on religion in a high school world history class in the southeastern United States during a three-month period of time. Rhizomatic cartography, which is based on Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of the rhizome, was the analytic method used as the researcher explored the relationship between smooth and striated space in the rhizome of classroom discussion. The terms smooth and striated are not dualistic, as each contains elements of the other and there is a constant back and forth or tension. Using lesson plans, transcripts, student work, as well as a range of artifacts from the classroom, the researcher mapped something that holds together enough to raise more questions, and found that thinking about classrooms rhizomatically offered possibility and the potential to think differently.
