Planning Creative Writing Activities for Educable Mentally Handicapped Adolescents.
Mitchell, Felicia
The value of creative writing instruction for educable mentally handicapped adolescents is considered and suggestions are provided regarding the development of creative writing activities. Suggestions touch on the students' needs for success, age-appropriate materials, continuity to strengthen concepts of cause and effects, and help in social relationships. A list of suggestions for creative writing activities is provided that presents information on procedures, student responses, and objectives for activities to promote word association, narrative skill, and responses to art. It is suggested that the teacher's role is one of an evaluator of students' strengths rather than one of a corrector of writing samples. (CL)
