Here they are again, although you have blown them off several times now so I don't really know why I am bothering (except maybe that your obvious uncomfortableness with being challenged is entertaining- I know a lot of teachers who have been in the saddle too long who have this disease of being defensive and dismissive of challenges that they are unprepared for.)
How did they all get to where they are today
My appreciation for writing is why I am now a college English instructor. I teach Composition 101 and use the five-paragraph essay format because I want my students to understand structure and organization first. I don’t explain Aristotle’s approach until the second half of the semester, when my students have a solid grasp of essay structure and can apply Aristotle’s argumentative approach intelligently. However, I still limit their writing to five paragraphs because the question I always get asked by students is: how many paragraphs or how long does this paper have to be? Sadly, the majority of my students don’t want to go above and beyond what is expected and would rather do the bare minimum. At the same time, I don't want them to ramble on and on and would prefer their papers to be succinct and to the point.
