Old Faithful: 18 Writers Present Their Favorite Writing Assignments Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this popular book, 18 teaching creative writers describe their single best writing assignment, the one that never fails to inspire their students to tell and dramatize stories, to write autobiographical pieces, fiction, poetry, and plays, or to become interested in wordplay and oral history. The essays fully describe practical ideas for adaption and use with students of all ages and abilities. The variety of approaches is unified by the respectful, engaged, and sympathetic attitude of the contributors and the enthusiastic response of their students. Most of the essays include examples of student work.

Synopsis:

This popular book, in which writers share the assignments that never fail to inspire their students, covers a broad spectrum of genres pertinent to the core curricula of school boards across the country. Lessons on diversity, Greek epic and non-classical literature will all do well by Christian McEwen's essay on preparing students for creating oral histories. But there are plenty of creative exercises on fiction, poetry, playwriting and memoir, here, to inspire teachers and engage students. Samples of student writing are included. Highly recommended. -Kliatt.
