Creative Writing Innovations: Breaking Boundaries in the Classroom (Hardcover)
When teachers experiment, students benefit. When students gain confidence to pursue their own literary experiments, creative writing can become a life-changing experience.With chapters written by experienced teachers and classroom innovators, Creative Writing Innovations builds on these principles to uncover the true potential of the creative writing classroom. Rooted in classroom experience, this book takes teaching beyond the traditional workshop model to explore topics such as multi-media genres, collaborative writing and field-based work, as well as issues of identity. Taken together, this is an essential guide for teachers of creative writing at all levels from the authors and editors of Creative Writing in the Digital Age.
