Throughout Hobbs “The Seven Great Debates in the Media Literacy Movement”, I could not help but think about the lack of objective standard of what good writing should be. We as educators should have a goal that we desire our students to attain. If using videos of “The Simpsons” allow my students to become better writers, then we should employ such techniques. Throughout all of the recent articles, I have failed to read what are goals as English teachers are. We all agree that students need to be better writers. Great. What does that look like? Without answering that question, most of these debates about new media are merely secondary issues. Or at least, these debates on technology cannot truly be waged without a clear understanding of what we want to achieve in regards to writing samples from our students. We need a weighing mechanism in this debate. We all need to agree on a value – excellence in composition. If we cannot agree with what a good term paper looks like or what the end result should be, then it seems we will simply argue in circles. Once we have defined what good writing is or what our desired outcome is, only then can we engage in the new media debate.
