Freedom to Write: A Composition Course For Ghetto Adults.
Demarest, David P., Jr.
College Composition and Communication, v19 n5 p312-15 Dec 1968
A teacher of English composition analyzes a few examples of written compositions given him by a class of adult job trainees, the majority of whom are of ghetto high school background. By concentrating on the positive aspects of their efforts and deemphasizing rigid grammatical mechanics which tend to inhibit their expression, he discovers that his students have a desire to write, as well as an abundance of natural creativity.
