2 Writing well is not just an option for young people-it is a necessity.

11 Debrief Designed by Carol Varsalona, ELA Consultant, January 2015 Western Suffolk BOCES All of the orthodoxies I challenge in this article arose out of read needs in the teaching of writing. In the Past, writers seldom revised, seldom had teachers listen to them, or wrote only fiction; they seldom listened to their pieces beyond two days, or were directed by the teacher, without learning to take responsibility for their work. Now that one phase of the writing process movement, the early of past problems, is over it is time to reexamine the early correction of past problems, is over it is time to reexamine the new orthodoxies, lest we cease to listen to children.
