Writing as People: Voice, Poetry, and the Special Needs Student.
Blake, Brett Elizabeth; Kuhn, Stephanie
Poetry is a powerful avenue through which students can learn to express their voices and to "write like people." In the special needs classroom, where students traditionally have had difficulty with narrative structure, and therefore have gone unheard, developing voice through poetry becomes especially crucial. Samples of students' poetry highlight their diverse voices. (Contains 15 references; a figure illustrates "The Headless Horseman," used as a writing prompt.) (Author/NKA)
