Description - Creativity and Writing by Teresa Grainger
This clear yet authoritative book affirms the vital role of creativity in writing, and considers and encourages flexible, innovative practices in the teaching of writing. Importantly, the book reflects upon teachers' imaginative and artistic involvement in the writing process as role models, collaborators, artists and writers themselves. Arguing that children's creative use of their language is key to the development of their language and literacy skills, this book focuses on the compositional process and children's own ideas. The authors examine the many voices that influence the inner and outer voice of the child, through reading, investigating, imagining, talking and taking part in a range of engaging and inspiring activities. Illustrated throughout with many examples of children's writing and drawing, and then with suggestions for classroom activities, this book is for any teacher looking to deepen their understanding of literacy theory and practice.
