Topic: Revision

Title: “Explicating Our Tacit Tradition: John Dewey and Composition Studies.” Stephen M. Fishman. College Composition and Communication (October 1993), 315-330. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Summary: Why don’t students revise? Because they think they should get it right the first time. Another view? Writing apprehension develops as writers realize the differences between their intentions and the actual product.

Comment: Both reasons might be right. So what? RayS.

The purpose of this blog is to summarize articles on teaching English/language arts, from kindergarten through college, published in English education journals from the past.
