Overmeyer, M. (2018, October 11). The Encouragement Resistant Writers Need. Retrieved January 17, 2019

“One truth I have learned about resistant writers has helped me more than any other: Many are better at resisting than they are at writing because they have practiced resistance. To change this pattern, we need to move these students in the opposite direction and help them practice writing. Our initial response to resistant students is important. “”I’ve tried everything, but if they won’t write, I can’t do anything about it,”” I’ve often thought to myself. This kind of negative thinking assumes that the writer cannot change.”
