Rethinking College Writing Instruction

Timely comment from a 9th grade teacher

“Our English department made the decision to focus on writing in the 9th grade, and to get into literature subjects after that. We have used your materials for several years. We now have two sections of freshman (ninth grade) English. I teach the lower group. The materials really work—you can see the writing getting better in real time. I’m grading papers now, and for 14-year-olds who knew nothing about writing when they started, these papers are not half bad.”
