Abstract


Creative Writing an Instructional Strategy to Improve Literacy: Attitudes of the Intermediate English Student focuses on the importance of literacy development in high schools consistent with Ontario’s (2008-2009) own priorities.

This research communicates students’ attitudes toward creative writing and it encourages teachers to ask themselves the question: Is creative writing an important instructional strategy for literacy success?
