A Call to Creativity

Albert Einstein once claimed that "Imagination is more important than knowledge." If you've ever had the deep sense that multiple choice questions, standardized test scores, and an array of rubricalismic tools do little to inspire and authentically grow students, then we've got a lot in common.

A Call to Creativity helps teachers to practically use creative and imaginative writing assignments and reading strategies  in the English classroom while also helping students to produce rigorous and skillful writing. The cover has just been finished, and the book will be available from Teachers College Press at the beginning of next month.
