Moving to the Center: Disorientation and Intention
Wilson, Maja; Niemczyk, Michael
English Journal, v97 n5 p34-39 May 2008
Maja Wilson and Michael Niemczyk advocate turning away from mandated writing toward learning environments that honor the messy, inner life of the writer. They explain the importance of disorientation in that it unsettles but nurtures the emerging intention of student writers, and they stress the need to return our attention to the heart and center of writing when assessing written work.
