A Call to Creativity: Writing, Reading, and Inspiring Students in an Age of Standardization. Language & Literacy Series
Reynolds, Luke
Teachers College Press
In this age of standardization, many English teachers are unsure about how to incorporate creative writing and thinking into their classroom. In a fresh new voice, Luke Reynolds emphasizes that "creativity in our lives as teachers and in the lives of our students is one of our most vital needs in the 21st century." Based on his own journey as an English teacher, "A Call to Creativity" is a practical guide that shows teachers how they can encourage and support students' creativity in the English/language arts classroom. The book offers both the inspiration and practical steps teachers need to engage their students through a variety of hands-on projects and worksheets that can be used immediately to insert creativity into any standards-based curriculum. This book features: (1) Adaptable projects tested in diverse school environments; (2) Guiding questions at the end of each chapter; (3) Lesson plans for creative writing assignments; and (5) Over 30 pages of worksheets and sample assignments.
