Creative Teaching of Reading in the Elementary School. 2nd Edition.
Smith, James A.
In this book, designed for both teachers in training and practicing teachers, an attempt is made to translate into methodology those principles of creative thinking and creative development derived from the last 10 years of reading research. Part 1, "The Nature of Creative Teaching," contains discussions of basic principles of creative teaching, the nature of reading, the creative teaching of reading, and literature and the reading program. In part 2, "The Nurture of Creativity through Reading and Literature," the creative teaching of beginning reading in the primary grades, of reading skills in the primary grades, of reading in the intermediate grades, and of literature and poetry are discussed.
