When Kenneth Koch entered the Manhattan classrooms of P.S. 61, the children, excited by the opportunity to work with an instructor able to inspire their talent and energy, would clap and shout with pleasure. In this vivid account, Koch describes his inventive methods for teaching these children how to create poems and features numerous examples of their work. Now with a new foreword by Ron Padgett of the Teachers & Writers Collaborative, Wishes, Lies, and Dreams is a valuable text for all those who care about unleashing the creative imagination and educating the young.
