In this collection, numerous professional writers who have worked with students in public school classrooms offer ideas for helping students learn to write creatively. The ideas are grouped into six major sections: "Teaching Writing,""Writing Ideas" (gimmicks, letters and dialogues, writing from observation, writing and literature), "Drama, Film, Video, Music, Art, and Publication,""Studying Society,""Handle with Tender Loving Care" (dealing with children's special needs), and "Inside School and Out." In addition to providing practical suggestions and teaching strategies, the writers contribute thoughtful discussions about their own teaching successes and failures and about many issues related to creativity, teaching, and learning. The book includes annotated bibliographies of varied resources for the teaching of writing, and it provides many examples of student work. (GW)
