I love your smoothie/blender analogy. I hadn't really appreciated how this is not a black and white issue. Hang in there. You're expecting much from your students - as a professor should. We earn our college degrees.

Yes. All of this. When I taught composition my students were so woefully unprepared for college writing and I felt like getting them to where they needed to be was such an overwhelming task. Two semesters of composition were not enough to remediate for the lack of strong writing classes in high school and junior high. They didn't know how to write or how to do research.
