Writing 101, part 2

The writing workshop I was leading finished up last week, and ultimately it was disappointing. I had dwindling (and varying) attendance, and of those who did show, almost none did or even attempted the assignments. If I were to do it again (and I probably won’t), I’m not sure how I would do it differently. I know it sounds defensive, but it’s difficult to plan and execute engaging activities when nobody in the group is participating. During and after the first class, lots of people said they wanted to get better at communicating. But then they never came back, and never communicated why. Maybe people don’t actually want to look at—and possibly critique—their own communication styles.
