Creative Writing in the Language Arts.
Ediger, Marlow
Pupils need to express themselves in creative processes and products in the language arts curriculum. Too frequently, teachers require behavior which involves conformity on the part of learners. Specific objectives many times delimit pupils' opportunities to express original ideas that come from within the involved learners. Many activities can assist pupils in achieving objectives: (1) summarizing the content of filmstrips using diverse forms of verse; (2) telling and writing of original "tall tales"; (3) writing poems emphasizing syllabification after viewing a set of stimulating pictures; (4) writing additional content, a different ending, or modifying a part of the content of library books or textbooks; (5) writing an advertisement to convince others to read a library book; (6) interviewing a selected character in the library book; and (7) drawing pictures and captions relating to the content read. Pupils, with teacher guidance, need to choose vital objectives, learning activities, and appraisal procedures reflecting the concept of creativity. (RS)
