Some Quick Thoughts On Writing

How long will we continue to teach writing? Not HOW to write as in topic sentence, body sentences, conclusion sentence and transitions, etc.  I’m talking about the act of writing.  I know that’s blasphemy, right?  But think about the future…50 years, 200 years…Will people still hand write things 200 years from now?  If I really think about the year 2316, I find it hard to imagine that people will be writing anything.  But who knows….Not many saw the iPhone coming along and disrupting everything.  

I guess it comes down to a simple question… How long do we hang on to something that we know will inevitably disappear?
