Trends in Writing Instruction

Question: How has the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) modified the teaching of writing?

Answer/Quote: “Secondary literacy educators, such as those in NCTE leadership, have worked for much of English discipline’s history to prevent so much of the Writing curriculum being focused on writing about literature.” P. 41.

Comment: A trend that I heartily endorse. RayS.
