[quote="Lbeauchesne"]Find something you do understand with 2 parts which can be likened to writing. Just standing in front of a class and saying "this is the planning method and this is the pants method" won't help the majority of students.
When I was at school, teachers used analogies all the time. It was often tied to something the teacher knew well. If you look into things you enjoy and know about outside of writing, you may just find something that you can liken the writing processes to.

Yeah, I've had teachers who don't understand or like what they're teaching and it showed, so probably is a good thing. The students will figure things out, once they get out of the classroom - they're usually very open-minded and eager to learn.

Writing is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as the headlights, but you make the whole trip that way.

I can say with certainty that I don't want to be taught by anyone with open disdain for the subject matter.
