ABSTRACT
The article discusses the tension between explicit instruction and authentic teaching and learning. The author suggests that these are not mutually exclusive and striving for a more relevant and personal study of literature and writing leads to discovered learnings. The author includes two studies, one from the viewpoint of a student and another from a ninth-grade English instructor.
