Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: [Expressivist writing] is about your daily life. It's about your life experiences, different roles, so it's not necessarily about yourself, the person, but it's about what you do growing up, or interacting in the village, and those are comfortable enough for that language to emerge, or for [students] to express that in their writing. And I really believe, you start with where you are, and what you know, in order for you to be able to develop your language skills. And I think this is where our students have encountered many problems: that they are being taught content 'of another place,' if you will.
