Humans “write” because it is our distinctive character
How old is our writing?
“writing,” consider expanding the field of composition.
mode, media, audience, purpose, and situation
I'm thinking of shared purpose here in connected learning - working in teams to create, revise, and share in collaboration that ripples onward to others to remix. Is this notion of, "what will someone else do with this" an incentive to quantity? quality? community?
Let writing go to edge of consciousness.
The edge - this could take time though, with writers struggling to think they can write. But finding the one gem in the work is important to build the confidence needed to become so is important.
write until we find this for ourselves, how can we expect it in our classroom?
