Listen to the Story: Using Spontaneous Story-Writing with Students.
Dehouske, Ellen
The role of spontaneous story writing in the education of normal and emotionally troubled students is examined. A review of the theoretical and research base touches on the value of fantasy production in language development, self exploration, and problem solving. Classroom application is examined in terms of the need for a facilitative environment, the teacher's role as listener and model, and the benefits of the students feeling accepted and understood. Illustrations are provided of stories written by a disturbed adolescent who learned to express herself and to feel a sense of belonging with other students. Appendixes provide information on sample story making activities. (CL)
