Link: Students Are Increasingly Anxious, but We Can Help Them | Just Visiting | InsideHigherEd

Good piece about the anxiety that writing courses often produce in students, and what we can do about that.  Written for higher ed, but absolutely applicable to K-12 educators as well.

Grades, however, tend to be not very good incentives for writing well. I believe that ultimately, writing must come from an internal, rather than external drive. Why can’t I do that same coaching I claim to value without the cudgel of grades?
