Writing Instruction

Question: What is writing instruction today and what should it consist of?

Answer/Quote: “Even while the disciplines are incorporating a wider variety of styles, genres, and methodological approaches, the majority of our classrooms still privilege more or less linear, thesis-driven, print-based scholarship. To become better writers, we must become more careful, deliberate, and daring writers. But to become these things we need better models. We need to read more varied texts and we need exposure to more varied pedagogies.” P. 484.

Comment: A lot of truth in that statement. RayS.
