At Play with Words.
Koch, Kenneth
American Educator, v24 n3 p11-15 Fall 2000
Describes how one teacher got elementary students excited about writing poetry by providing them with simple rules and structures and encouraging them to take chances. Strategies included having each child contribute one line to a poem, discouraging rhyming (which is difficult and blocks creativity), encouraging them to write freely, and having them write while listening to music.
