In this assignment, you will help continue the conversation on the teaching and /or use of language varieties in the classroom by writing a letter to Stanley Fish (author of What should Colleges Teach? Pt 3) and bring to his attention an additional perspective (Teaching Standard English: Whose Standard?). The main goal in the letter is not to make an argument in favor or against Fish’s position, or to make a new argument- though these may be aspects of the letter – but to pose questions and identify new connections that may help the author either build upon their idea or to rethink a particular position or point.
To do this, your task is to:
– Bring to the author’s attention another perspective on the teaching and/or use of language varieties in the classroom.
– Offer how the supplementary perspective suggests ways of extending or rethinking the author’s position
**Requirements***
1. A letter formatted like a business letter (excluding addresses) and written directly to Stanley Fish.
– An introduction that explains to Fish that you have read their essay, create goodwill with them even if you disagree with their position, and explain your purpose in writing them ( to bring to their attention another perspective)
– A summary of their position. Show Fish that you have carefully read and considered their argument. Be sure to employ both paraphrase and quoting.
– Summarize the supplementary perspective, being sure to show how it adds support or challenges Fish or Young’s position. Be sure to paraphrase and quote key passages.
– Build upon the supplementary perspective, conclude with questions or suggestions that aim to help Fish build upon their argument or to rethink a key idea.
