"Find the stuffiest, dreariest, most out-of-context and inauthentic set of practices in each domain, and that's exactly what you'll find traditionalists fighting fiercely to preserve: spelling and vocabulary quizzes based on unrelated words, lessons on the separate elements of punctuation and grammar, diagrammed sentences, penmanship practice, formulaic book reports that would make anyone lose interest in even the most delightful story."
