How Has Your Own Work as a Writer Helped You as an English Teacher?
Dobson, Meaghan Hanrahan; Gillespie, Joanne S.; Fogle, Andy
English Journal, v98 n3 p22-23 Jan 2009
Three English teachers share their ideas on how their work as a writer helped them as a teacher. One teacher has found that the desire for meaningful response to her own writing has led her to evaluate her students similarly. A second teacher discusses how personal experience translates into teaching how to convey rejection in a useful and tactful manner. The third teacher writes that her status as a poet and book critic has led to an assortment of classroom experiences, giving her confidence to challenge and extend notions of what student writing is allowed to be and do.
