As a writer I tend to wobble a LOT. I really only have a strong ‘pose’ in academic writing, were facts are the scripture, and I run around like a profit connecting facts and details with thoughts that I have. Even within these writings I wobble some, for example: sometimes research is hard to do, the facts don’t line up, you can’t find ANYTHING that has to do with your topic, and when you encounter things like this your writing tends to wobble a little. When I come across moments like these, I “fake it ’till I make it,” I do my best to find legitimacy, and relevance between things, and I tend to not linger on those particular bits in my writing so that I can get back into my safe pose as an academic writer.
As a future teacher, I don’t think I’ll have a lot of trouble wobbling with my students, maybe we’ll even do the dance just to signify that it’s OK to not always be perfect, because not only can your teacher not dance AT ALL, but even she struggles with writing sometimes. I think it’s important for students to see that their teacher is an imperfect human who even needs help herself sometimes. I think even an exercise where the teacher writes a less that acceptable paper and students help to revise and comment on what should be done to make it better and provide positive and constructive criticism could be a great exercise in accepting the wobble and working with it until you find the pose you want.
The only true risk, is that your students may laugh at you a little, but it will be good, because they will reflect on their own writing, and will benefit from the experience of wobbling together.
