Ad Astra: Creative Writing for the Gifted Secondary School Student.
Schulkind, Carole Marks
This paper gives an overview of the creative writing program at BOCES III Institute for Gifted and Talented Youth during the 1974 and 1975 summer sessions. There were five major activity areas in the workshop: training in sensory awareness; writing, accompanied by criticism and revision; editing and publishing a book; literary analysis; and writing and performing drama. Various games, activities, and instructional techniques and materials for helping the students become proficient in each of these areas are described. The three appendixes include such materials as lesson plans, assignments, and samples of student work. (TS)
