Sing Me the Creation

Front Cover
Hawthorn Press, 1994 - Education - 206 pages
This resource book contains over 300 exercises and games for individual and group work in creative writing. Though the book's exercises are intended for group work with adults, teachers of children will encounter many new ideas for the classroom, and individuals working alone will have no difficulty adapting the exercises to their needs. The exercises are designed to develop the individual's and the group's imagination, they are not meant as self-help instruction exercises. Following an introduction which tells how to use the book, gives permission to break the rules, offers suggestions for group practice, and describes the structure of the book, the exercises are grouped under the following broad sections: The Statement; The Question; The Exclamation; The Command; The Hearth; and The Quintessence.
