Let Them Write Plays!
Educational Leadership, v75 n7 p38-42 Apr 2018
The traditional academic research paper isn't always the best form in which to judge student writing. When students are given a choice in form and genre, their true talents and creativity can be unleashed. Miller offers up classroom examples and ideas on how to let students express their creativity in writing literary papers, research papers, and responses to standardized tests without sacrificing the learning of research techniques, primary source citation, and thinking analytically.
