Social Class Reproduction

Four Rules for Teaching Writing:
Image result for image: joy of writing
Always give writing assignments that

1. you will enjoy reading;
2. students will enjoy writing;
3. students will enjoy reading what others in the class have written
4. you will enjoy writing.

If any one of these conditions were not true, then it probably wasn't a very good assignment.

Advice I give to my students: When your words surprise you, you know you are writing.

Music, Movies, Books

Scott Whiddon's music recommendations (I trust Scott):  Savages. Chvrches. Queens of the Stone Age. Superchunk. MBV (was it worth the wait? Not sure, but it's a stunner for guitar players). Jason Isbell. The Big Star reissue/film materials. The Come 11:11 reissue (amazing). Vandaveer/Oh Willie Please. Lee Renaldo and the Dust. The fact that Bob Mould is touring with the best lineup since Sugar. The return of Neutral Milk Hotel for what seems to be the never-ending tour of joyous rawk. Lexington rocknroll and the people who do that. And, if I spent more time with the Deerhunter record, it would probably make this list, too.
