  • 7. Teachers need to provide students with rich literacy experiences so that they can read and write in various situations for a variety of reasons.“Everything points to the necessity of learning to write from what we read.” (Smith, 1983, p. 560)

  • 10. Good Teaching
    One of the best examples of good teaching I have ever
    encountered was with a golf professional. On my first lesson,
    he said, “Here is a bucket of balls…hit ‘em.” A few minutes
    later he wandered back and quietly said, “Keep hitting them,
    only this time keep your head down, eye on the ball.” By the
    next bucket of balls he had introduced one more skill for the day…no more.
    Before a few weeks were out, he had quietly attended to my feet, grip,
    shoulder level, and follow through. A few years later I realized with a start
    that every single one of my problems was visible on that first lesson. If I had
    attended to all of them that first day, I would probably have missed the ball
    entirely and resigned in disgust from ever playing golf again.
