Creation as a Conscious Act.
Nichols, James R.
Ohio English Bulletin, v12 n1 p4-7 Mar 1971
A mistaken assumption held by English teachers for three decades is that there is a definite separation between a child's imagination and his intellectual discipline. When a student is assigned written themes, the assignments should stress the imaginative act as a disciplined and largely conscious process. The students must be helped to discover that the techniques employed by a good writer are employed purposely. Eventually, the student must make the crucial jump from the mere identification of terms as abstract principles to the use of these terms as vital and meaningful concepts. (CK)
