Creativity and Writing Summary

Creativity and Writing: Developing Voice and Verve in the Classroom by Teresa Grainger (The Open University and President of UKLA)

This clear yet authoritative book affirms the vital role of creativity in writing and considers and encourages flexible, innovative practices in teaching. Importantly, the book reflects upon teachers' imaginative and artistic involvement in the writing process as role models, collaborators, artists, and as writers themselves.

Arguing that children's creative use of language is key to the development of language and literacy skills, this book focuses on the composition process and how children can express their own ideas. In addition, the authors consider the many forms of creative language that influence the inner and outer voice of children, including reading, investigating, talking and engaging in a range of inspiring activities.

Illustrated throughout with many examples of children's writing and drawing, this book also provides suggestions for classroom activities and is a source of inspiration and practical guidance for any teacher looking to deepen their understanding of literacy theory and practice.

Creativity and Writing Reviews

The authors are very close to the needs and aspirations of teachers, so that the tone of this book is accessible as well as stimulating. It will make as important, well-timed contribution to language and literacy in education. - "Eve Bearne, University of Cambridge"
