Insights into Open Education, v26 n3 Nov 1993
This issue of "Insights into Open Education" presents three short articles dealing with teaching poetry, English instruction, and the concept of time. The first article, "Teaching Poetry Tips" (Gem Reid), discusses the author's experiences conducting a week-long poetry workshop for a class of 30 second graders. The second article, "Teaching English without Desks" (Marlow Ediger), discusses a student teacher's implementation and evaluation of a unit on creative writing (using "learning stations") for a sixth-grade class. The third article, "A Brief History of Time and the 'Red Clock'" (Charles Martin), discusses using a student-managed time clock during student council meetings to help children learn the value of time and their part in learning to manage it.
