The straightforward and handy techniques used in this unpretentious book, bring out the natural poet in all of us. The volume offers tools, practice, and examples. Dotted with exercises, materials in this book are invaluable for classroom teaching. Who says children cannot be trained to write poetry? Sarika Singh's well-structured, undemanding, encouraging and inspiring tutorial, is like a series of stepping stones for all those who have imagined putting pen to paper to articulate a sentiment. Goods teaching should demonstrate, not inform or advise. That principle in practise, is what makes this volume extraordinary. Poetry writing never seemed so simple!

This book offers a provocative look at the significant roles that imagination and intuition play in the daily operation of teachers’ classrooms. The author explores the idea of creativity in education as it relates to being spontaneous, open, confident, experienced, and familiar. Readers are invited to envision how the classroom comes alive by pondering the themes of “Interaction,” “Connections and Context,” “Storytelling” and “Emotion—Excitement, Love, and Caring” through the stories of teachers. Jagla explores ways of fostering imagination and intuition with preservice and inservice teachers and provides ways of encouraging students to use their own imaginations and intuitive processes. The book provides an exciting mix of original anecdotes, literature review, and insightful analysis.

Conceived as the successor to Gregg and Steinberg's Cognitive Processes in Writing, this book takes a multidisciplinary approach to writing research. The authors describe their current thinking and data in such a way that readers in psychology, English, education, and linguistics will find it readable and stimulating. It should serve as a resource book of theory, tools and techniques, and applications that should stimulate and guide the field for the next decade. The chapters showcase approaches taken by active researchers in eight countries. Some of these researchers have published widely in their native language but little of their work has appeared in English-language publications.
