good writers...

It looks to me as if something needs to change. If from 2005-2009 there are still strong feelings against the model something is not working. In theory a lot looks good on paper. Teaching in middle America a lot is different from urban NYC life. What works in one place may not work in another. If we are trying to teach students to be writers we should be teaching creativity and encouraging exploration of self. I feel this is hard for students to do if they are all encouraged to write the same way, "Good writers ..." This is even less productive if students do not even have basic reading and writing skills down.
