Creativity in Writing: A Sequence of Readings for Secondary English Teachers and Departments.
Perry, Douglas R.
At present, the theory of creative writing most widely used is based on the premise that personal writing contains dimensions for child growth. Recent research indicates that students taught from the creative model require the same degree of facility in writing skills as those students taught by the traditional method. Furthermore, students in classrooms where creativity is the basis of writing have a more positive attitude toward their teachers and toward writing than do students nurtured in the traditional method. This paper outlines a sequence of readings designed to aid the teacher or department chairperson who is interested in implementing the creative model in a classroom or department. A brief annotation is given for each of the several books listed under 10 headings: (1) Raising Questions, (2) Creativity Considered, (3) The Case for Creativity, (4) Creativity in Secondary English, (5) The Curriculum, (6) A Theory of Discourse, (7) The Open Classroom, (8) Creative Resources, (9) Practical Advice, and (10) Curriculum Guides. It is concluded that by drawing attention to the significant materials dealing with creativity in writing, the meaning and method of this term will become clearer. (TS)
