reflect, learning to

Learning to write is the most direct way of learning to reflect; it is not the content, but the process of the liberal arts. Nowhere does such critical and creative engagement happen with more intensity, both individually and socially, than in an open-topic, research-driven, process-oriented, small-group-centered, portfolio-assessed class of student writers.

Keep these coming please. This idea is the basis of why I find blogging so valuable.

My goal is that we can move away from teacher created, assessment style writing and move toward, "open-topic, research-driven, process-oriented, small-group-centered, portfolio-assessed class of student writers," who share their work on blogs.
