Poet in the Schoolhouse (Evoking Creative Energy in Language).
Berger, Art
A teachers experience in teaching disadvantaged children to write creatively is described. Conclusions drawn are that teachers must learn to accept the language of the children; children should be allowed to invent the language by which they manage their own world; no arbitrary limits should be placed on the range of experience and language used in the classroom; and writing must not be estranged from the other arts such as acting, music, drawing, and dance.
