long time no post

Sorry I haven’t been posting. I went from 28 posts in January to only 1 in February, so, yep, got a little busy there. But I’m still here, and my words’ll pop up on this blog occasionally. I hope! Now, back to work…

Oh wait — here are a couple cool quotes I’ve found lately:

If we look at the history of writing instruction in America, we find that writing teachers have been as much or more interested in who they want students to be as in what they want their students to write (396). —Lester Faigley

[T]he most valuable political act any teacher can perform is not to impose particular political views but to teach students to see the words that society tries to inject into them unseen. —Wayne Booth, The Vocation of a Teacher 154
