My LEAST favorite EPIPHANY quotations/notions:
Questions that EPIPHANY hesitates to acknowledge as still contestable (figuring
them, instead, as backward and needing to be overcome by means of a personal con
version [i.e., Epiphanites have seen the way that everybody would, if only visio
nary, also see]):
- "the real problem is the age of print"
- "recapturing the richness" of an oral c
ulture (without articulating the "richness" of a print culture)
- "liberating students to write a new way
. . . [or] back to the five-paragraph essay"
- distinguishing "print" from "cyber" in a hierarchical m
odel which figures print and its ideologies as backward, repressive, and
- Do non-linear thinking and new hyper-literacies req
uire us to employ models of assessment that reward for "participatio
n" rather than discriminate between persuasive/unpersuasive, documented/u
ndocumented, or better/worse?
- Can we use the NEW technologies to improve our use of
the OLD model of literacy?
