Question:

Why is writing well such a hard skill to master?

Inactive
Sarah O.
Answer:

Having taught literature and writing for over 14 years, I've found that many students are challenged by writing because they assume that composing an essay is merely a process of transcribing their ideas to paper. In reality, though, writing is itself a form of thinking. Getting our ideas on paper requires that we clarify and hone our thoughts. This process often demands drafting, messy revision, and deep critical thinking. I enjoy helping students through the work of perfecting their voice in academic writing.

Question:

What’s the most important American novel?

Answer:

For me, it’s Beloved by Toni Morrison. Morrison’s novel explores difficult eras in American history, including slavery and the post-Civil War Reconstruction periods. The stream-of-consciousness form of the novel helps readers see trauma and grief as both historical occurrences and personal experiences.

Question:

How do stories shape our culture?

Answer:

Stories – whether told through films, plays, novels, short TV ads, or long-form articles – define how we interpret and perceive the world around us. Learning to think carefully about how stories mobilize specific genres and engage with world-historical events can make us better thinkers and more empathetic citizens of the world.
