How Not to Teach a Writing Class

Interesting that I’ve been thinking about how to be the best writing teacher, and I happened to come across this old episode of Grace Under Fire that shows how NOT to teach creative writing.  Watch from about 10:52 until 12:40 to see an example of creating a non-safe space writing environment!

Journal, if you wish: I know it’s just a clip from an old television show, but have you ever had a writing teacher be so critical that you had no interest in sharing your work?  If you watch the rest of the episode, what do you think about Grace’s response?
