Respond to the Wiley or Nelson piece. Please point us to a couple of places in the Nelson text that might help us think through our support for writers. OR where do you stand on the issues Wiley raises about formulaic writing?
I totally chose to respond to this piece because Mark and I both shard the same last night lol.
Any-who, I have mixed emotions about Wiley's stance. While I do believe that the formulaic essay can help students who are struggling and prefer a format to follow, I also believe that this way of writing hinders students’ ability to make connections toward their own lives and fully interpreting the literacy.
