Creating the Joyful Writer is a teacher resource based on holistic education for those educators who want to go beyond traditional approaches but do not know how. In this book, emphasis is placed on the whole person (intellectual, physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and environmental) rather than the intellectual way of knowing. Written in an easy-to-read format, the book provides a holistic approach that fosters creativity and joy in the production of written expression.
