When Shall We Three Meet Again?
Cowan, Greg
This paper argues that writing teachers' emphases on orderly and polished products from their students have inhibited the ability to invent ideas and think clearly. The teaching techniques of the poet William Stafford are described as a model for teaching students to be more thoughtful. It is concluded that teachers of writing should first encourage their students to discover ideas before concentrating on ordering and polishing what they write. (TS)
