Hello everyone! These are our readings for next time (Thursday Feb 20 and Monday Feb 24). They’re both from BAD IDEAS ABOUT WRITING. Keep in mind the titles are both “bad ideas” which the authors seek to disprove. The first is “Teaching Grammar Improves Writing” and the second is “There is One Correct Way of Writing and Speaking.” We’ll discuss them in depth when we speak. They’re both suitable for students. I’ve attached both below.
The Thursday group will also have a guest speaker, Lubie Alatriste. She’s a linguist, as well as the head of our ELL dept.
