Chapter 5. Process and product, means and ends
In this chapter, Kit Kelen presents a personal account of his efforts to establish a Creative Writing pedagogy for non-native learners of English in the particular ESL context of post-handover (i.e. post-1999) Macao. Employing a Freirean framework, the chapter argues for the social-institutional necessity of a process and publication oriented curriculum. Pedagogical/ethical issues are canvased in the hope of presenting the reader with ideas for the future development of such curricula, as of particular relevance in what have been termed the “Confucian Heritage Culture” zones of East Asia.
