- We all have the right to write. Anything we can say, we can write.
- We all can write well if we are emotionally involved in our topic and our purpose. We find our voices there. Writing is learning and discovering. It develops best in real-life situations, with the instructor intervening in the writing process.
- We learn to read by having written. We learn from our experiences, including experiences with oral and written texts. We should expose ourselves to many texts, and often do free-choice reading.
- We learn best in collaborative, diverse, and supportive communities. We all learn in our own ways, and our home cultures affect how we interpret our experiences.
- Moving through the writing process can produce powerful writing. We gain more ownership over our writing if we master the writing process.
- Writing is a strong tool for developing critical thinking. Challenging our thinking as we write in collaborative settings, develops academic language proficiency.
- We teach equitably: not less, but more to the poor. We recognize our children's home communities and ancestral cultures as our educational partners.
