Over Thirty Years of Teaching Middle-School English

Probably the best compliment I received as a writing teacher of eighth-graders was when the top freshman English teacher at the high school we fed into said that he could tell which students had been taught by me. I attribute that to having the students write everyday, writing all types of discourse (persuasive, expository, and narrative), and taking selected pieces through the entire writing process. Even in today's world of emails, Twitter, and texting, good writing is something which is of great benefit to all who possess it. [more]
