In three words, this simple graphic summarizes the way writing should be taught. When the class is reading To Kill a Mockingbird, the teacher should take time to point out the great sentences—their structure, their detail, their variety. And she should not hesitate to use grammar terms to do it, especially phrases and clauses.
After finishing the book, she should assign a creative paper in which the students select three of those wonderful sentences, empty out Harper Lee's words, and pour in their own. Teacher and students will find that all the other sentences will rise, inspired by the quality of Lee's writing, and they will be the best stories those students have ever written.
That's the way Write for College teaches writing. Study real sentences, real paragraphs, real essays, and use the real vocabulary of grammar. All the elements must always be connected.
I want the world to know about this method. I did not invent it, but I have taught it to thousands of students for decades. It works.
