Writing Is the Funnest Thing: Teaching Creative Writing.
Witter, Janet; Emberlin, Don
Oregon ASCD Curriculum Bulletin, v27 n318 p1-39 Aug 1973
This curriculum bulletin discusses a program teaching creative writing to fifth and sixth grade children in an attempt to improve the quality of written English. These children wrote briefly every day throughout the school year. Every area of the written language curriculum was covered. Each student wrote letters, reports, stories, editorial essays, news stories, poetry, descriptions, and jingles. Samples of the students' writings on all these topics, as well as the stimuli used to provide the writing, are presented. Students wrote on approaching holidays and seasons, emotions, colors, and sensory impressions. They also described objects and people and composed stories from interesting situations. (LL)
