Literature and writing are human activities that assume the existence of community and the imperative of politics.

In the classroom these assumptions come into the open where we can seem them, turn them over and talk about them. Students can only learn to communicate by doing it, but learning to do it—and to do it with confidence, a necessary life and career skill—is not easy. This skill is what I seek to teach.
