Creative Writing in the Middle Schools.
Brooks, Lisa M.
In a collaborative project between School #74 in Buffalo, New York, and the Graduate School of Education at the State University in Buffalo, predominantly African American sixth graders enhance their writing skills through creative tasks. They also develop their writing voices and gain some exposure to university life. Graduate students in English and social studies, along with two professors, team up with the middle school students and their teachers to explore writing poetry, descriptions, and imagined narratives about college. Each year the students publish an anthology of their writing. The project is thriving, now into its fourth year. (SAM)
