I’ve being doing a MOOC on Writing – English Composition I: Achieving Expertise designed by Denise Comer out of Duke University. Every now and then I hit a significant moment which I want to record. This week I realised that when I read to evaluate I learn. That sounds terribly trite but reading a text, make a claim, and then encountering and evaluating the claims of others has really forced me to learn something about that original text. Could we use this in a classroom? What are the consequences for time, for curriculum, for skills students develop. I must pursue this!
