Slow down teaching writing.

If you rush through a writing unit because you need to cover the curriculum, you risk producing whole classes of students who

  • cannnot write.
  • hate the thought of having to write.
  • may also hate having to read. 

It is far preferable to take six years to turn out competent writers than to run those risks.

Whatever you teach about writing, teach well and teach thoroughly.
