Old Faithful: 18 Writers Present Their Favorite Writing Assignments
Edited by Christopher Edgar & Ron Padgett 160 pp.
In this popular book, 18 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 strategies for adaption with students of all ages and abilities. The variety of approaches is unified by the respectful, engaged, and sympathetic attitude of the contributors—and by the enthusiastic response of their students. “Highly recommended.”—Kliatt
