Library of Congress Subject Heading

Creative writing (Elementary education); Second grade (Education)


The numerous articles in the area of creative writing, the admission of too many teachers insisting that they can't teach it, and the growing emphasis placed on creative writing as an integral part of some reading programs prompted the interest of the writer to delve a little more deeply into the reports of the experts and thus, undertake this study. It was the writer's purpose therefore, to answer at least partially, such questions as: 1. Is it important to allow children to write? 2. Why allow for creative writing? 3. How much emphasis should be placed on correctness?
