Differing perspectives

Reading Teaching/Writing: The Journal of Writing Teacher Education today I felt as if I’d stumbled into a foreign country.

The English teacher says, “Engage in an ongoing reflective conversation with the texts of your life.”

The journalist says, “Write what you know.”

I think I want to go back to journalism.

I understand that language.
