Proximal development through Orwell

Konrad Glogowski has a thought provoking strategy for developing writing, and more importantly reflective thinking processes and skills over in his blog of proximal development
I want them to see their writing as an attempt to capture the current state of their engagement with ideas not the final pronouncement on the assigned topic. Writing and learning itself are not about coming to immutable conclusions. They are about negotiation, about branching off into other avenues, about exploring possibilities.
We've been talking about writing a bit lately in the TALO egroup. So Konrad's post comes at a good time.
