An Anthology for Creative Writing in Grades Seven and Eight
Compiled by Eugene Schwartz
Eugene Schwartz has compiled a fascinating anthology for the 7th grade creative writing block. Here are excerpts, stories, poems, even jokes that represent some what is best and most loved in Western literature, all of them chosen because they are so interesting and evocative that even a 7th grader will want to join the discussion.
And, at the beginning, Schwartz offers some invaluable tips on creating the lessons and carrying them out. This is a must-have resource for anyone teaching this block, whether in the class or at home.
