There are several reasons which have determined me to write about teaching
creative writing and its applications in teaching.
First of all, I would like to begin by saying that teaching is what I have wanted to
do since I was a teenager , although at that time I did not know what I wanted to teach. It
was only in the 12th grade that I decided to become a foreign language teacher. Then , in
the 3 rd year of college , I discovered methodology. For me it was fascinating because it
provided me with information I was looking for regarding teaching : how to use and
when to use certain materials, how to organize the classroom , the roles of teacher , how
to correct errors etc .
Methodology taught me a lot of useful things , many of which I tried to apply
during my pedagogical practice. And everything turned out to be even better than I had
expected : although thrilled at the thought of teaching , I was at the same time terrified ,
since I did nit know what to expect , what the reaction of the students would be etc.
The students in the classroom where I taught were 4th graders and I knew that they could
not pay attention more than 15 minutes , especially during a writing class so I tried to
catch their attention using creative writing activities , as I had previously learned in a
methodology lecture. The result was amazing for me : they were all excited and they all
participated actively and they provided interesting writings. It was great.
Why creative writing? Because I wanted to find an appropriate way to make their
activity of writing pleasant and enjoyable and because I consider creative writing useful
Actually this is the topic on which I focused my research in this paper.
The main issues I am concerned with in the present paper are:
- the types of creative writings and how they can be applied in the classroom;
- student’s perception of teacher who uses creative writings in the classroom;
- student’s performance in tests using creative writings;
REASONS FOR TEACHING WRITING
The age group I have in mind is that of pupils about 7-10 years old , who have only
recently started elementary school.
Since children at this age are good at learning orally and are still learning to write
in their mother tongue , I need to explain and justify why we should teach them to write
in another language at this stage , apart from just giving them a few routine exercises.
Learning writing shouldn’t be seen as a burden for them. There are many good reasons
for teaching writing at this age.
