My philosophy of teaching is a belief that any student can learn to write well. I believe that good written English is not just a function of applying the rules of grammar; it is also a function of reading widely and often, and thinking critically about what has been read. My opinion of the text is only relevant in helping the students stay focused or contributing special insights. Students who actively engage a text by him or herself become more confident in their own ability to interpret the text and write about it. This confidence then requires the student to more actively pursue the language and grammar skills required to write well.
