Challenges of learning
"...they don't always welcome how different or challenging it is to have to learn how to negotiate new terrain. At this point in the semester, they're irked--they want recipes, prescriptions, the five-foolproof-steps-to-writing-the-great paper-or-short-story approach. And we've trained them to expect no less instead of the wonderfully messy process of deep critical inquiry with its switchback trails, its box canyon dead-ends, and its sandstorms out of which we somehow must find our way."
