I realize that not everyone might have read this particular article, but I wanted to ask a question pertaining to something that Miller states. He discusses writing as a tool for self-expression, and how today, students have access to many ways of self-sponsored acts of writing (i.e. poems, blogs, screenplays). He takes these ideas further saying that he is more interested in creative thought, rather than critical thinking (148).
Do you think that Miller has the right idea about creative vs. critical? Is this a one or the other situation? How can we, as teachers, generate the environment that promotes either one of these?
