« Five Lies We Tell Our Students - #3: "There are 5-7 sentences in a paragraph" | Main | Homeschooler's Ire »



Heh ... I just told my kids today that, for their next essay, their thesis statement does NOT have to be in the introduction. I told them to "experiment" with thesis placement. They cheered. Just wait'll I tell 'em next time that they can use not one but TWO sentences for it. I'll be their favorite teacher ever! :)


What does it mean to say that one wants students to "...not be used by language"?
