Favorite comments of '10: Hainish on writing about your feelings

(Autism diaries XXIII: Writing what you feel)


Others may disagree, but what I see again and again is that it all comes down to the personality type(s) selected for in the teaching profession.

If these people find it wonderful to write about their feelings, then of course they will ask their students to do so. And they will think that they are doing their students a favor.

My guess is that most new English teachers have less interest in grammar and linguistics than in the past, and are much more about self-expression and "creativity." It goes right back to the selection criteria used by schools of education.
