David Bartholomae's "Inventing the University"
I found that this article was intersting and informative. It raised some thoughts in my mind as I read it. I have included a few of my questions below:
1. Is "Inventing the University" an appropriate title for the article? What other names would be more appropriate?
2. Is Bartholomae's argument about creativity and "building bridges" between the writer's point of view and the reader's point of view teachable? If our job in a high school setting is to teach students how to write, Bartholomae's job as a professor is to hone those skills. But what if the student just can't do it? Then what?
3. What exactly is "creativity"? Can it be taught?
