'''Response to my own question (Miller Text, Hesse reading)'''

I don't think I ever consciously noticed the interchangeable use of ''writing'' and ''composing'' until I read Hesse's article "Who Owns Writing?" He really hit the nail on the head when he mentioned that the word writing implies that it (writing) tends to be thought of as ''separate from thinking.'' Personally that is the bias I tend to bring to the table when I read or hear the word writing. I think, okay, there is a formula for writing and a goal of making a good grade. Plug in what the teacher wants, and make the good grade happen. But composing... that word affects me much differently. I think of artists and musicians, and knowledge and creativity flowing from unknown and unseen places. Opportunities for true uniqueness arise from composing, from composition, or at least those words lead me to believe that. Now, this issue does matter to me. I think I will try to think about and use the word composing from here in out, for personal use and use in the classroom. I think the impact of changing the framing of the issue will be massive and worthy.

I got a good chuckle from that list on page 120 as well. I really like that you said "It make one right and the other wrong. just different, and we should all understand our differences."

But in response to your questions, I'm really glad that you asked if there should be a different word to describe this pedagogy because I really think there should be. I don't think the heated emotion around the word feminist really does this pedagogy any justice. "Paying Attention Pedagogy" or "Questioning the Invisible Pedagogy" might work a little better.

I agree that if you really are paying attention, along with questioning and analyzing how gender differences affect different issues, you are indeed a feminist. Doing this doesn't mean you have to "side" with females; it doesn't even mean you only analyze females... it's both genders and how each one shapes, affects and molds the other.
