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?
