Appeared in Library Journal on 1996-03-15:
O'Connor's story of teaching writing to inner-city kids fits into the teacher-in-the-trenches genre. This is one of the better ones, though, because the author, part of the Teachers' and Writers' Collaborative, focuses on the kids and the techniques used to generate meaningful writing. Placing poems, stories, and plays at center stage, he describes how his students became successfully engaged in the writing process. Some of O'Connor's approaches are very creative. Yet even more important is his process of developing a better understanding of his students and how learning takes place. A good example of the effective teaching of writing by a reflective teacher; for most education collections.‘Nancy E. Zuwiyya, Binghamton City Sch. Dist., N.Y.
