Question:

Is there just one format for good writing? Is there a formula to follow to ensure your writing gets the point across?

Answer:

Writing is as individual as the person. Unfortunately, many students have lost their creativity and unique voices when it comes to writing and need to learn through examples and workshopping how to regain their confidence and uniqueness. There are many ways to write but no foolproof format or formula. Writing is about communication, heart, and a whole lot of editing.

Subject: Literature

Question:

What has happened to our ability to read and love reading? Are teacher's slowing killing the love of reading by over-analyzing novels? Why do we care what strategies are being used?

Answer:

A day doesn't go by in my classroom where I am berated with the question, "Why?" Why are we reading this text? Why do we have to analyze it? Why can't we just read a book to read and not have to write about it? These are all valid and important questions. The beauty in reading and analyzing is that it helps us to view the world differently and think in a more creative and critical way. Analyzing literature is like unraveling a mystery. Through inquiry and discussion, students can learn to start enjoying reading once again.

Answer:

Sounds familiar? It certainly does to me! This is a common question asked by high school seniors around the nation. Why? Because they are about to embark on writing one of the most difficult essays every encountered - the College Essay. Colleges ask students to write about their souls, dreams, and goals in 650 words or less. Each one of these words must be creative and heartfelt. That is a daunting task for an eighteen-year-old. Through inquiry and writing exercises - this process can be meaningful and exciting.
