Words and the World at a New York Public School: Can Writing Really Matter to Inner City Children?
O'Connor, Stephen
Teachers & Writers, v32 n2 p1-8 Nov-Dec 2000
Recounts the author's experiences teaching writing for several years in the New York city public schools. Relates his changing thoughts, feelings and assumptions about why creative writing matters (or does not matter) to these students. Concludes that writing can help people struggle against suffering and injustice, and it can also give the imagination and the spirit something like perfect freedom. (SR)
