A Descriptive Study of Creative Writing at the Junior High School Level.
Bean, Ariel Storey
This study examined the written product in several literary forms by boys and girls of junior high school age. Approximately 875 written items from 238 student authors were collected and examined. It was found that there was more variation in creativity in writing among the boys than among the girls. No significant differences between the sexes in creativity in writing were found. The literary form which was completed most successfully by the student authors was the generalized description, with the poem being the next most successful. The least successfully completed form was the Disneyette, an animal story form. Student-used or created metaphors were found in 66 of the 875 written items. A correlation was made between student use of metaphors and creativity in writing but was not found to be significant. (Author)
