Thanks, Hugh. Interesting stuff. Here is another article that lays out some of the critiques being offered up by many archaeologists: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/04/mastodons-americas-peopling-migrations-archaeology-science/

As a first-year writing teacher, I started to believe that students were better off learning to do the kind of writing they needed for their other classes, so we would work on discipline-specific papers, which went pretty well.
This was the best thing that I learned as a teaching assistant, though, and I liked to pass it on to my students: A study was done showing that when grappling with new ideas, learners' writing tended to get considerably worse before making a quantum leap to better. So poor writing can be a sign of growth. Part of the discovery process.
