"The instructional practices we use . . . have histories of their own. This history influences not only the practices themselves, but the ways in which we each engage with and enact these practices in our classrooms. Understanding this past allows us to step back and see ourselves and our teaching as residing within a larger story. Through such knowledge, we are better equipped to critically reflect on our own individual instructional stories and make purposeful decisions when planning for future instruction.
(“A Tale of 3 P’s—Penmanship, Product, and Process: 100 Years of Elementary Writing Instruction” by Lisa K. Hawkins and Abu Bakar Razali, p. 305)
