Description

This ebook is available in PDF format and can be opened using the free Adobe® Reader® program or a comparable viewer.

As writing instruction becomes more standardized and structured, student voices grow silent. Speak for Yourself: Writing with Voice places a new emphasis on voice in the teaching of writing.

Armed with the philosophy and concrete teaching ideas offered in this book, teachers can find the courage to speak up in order to create writing classrooms where students take ownership of their work, enjoy what they’re writing, and produce writing that shows depth of thought and originality of expression.

This book acknowledges the pressures English teachers face in today’s educational climate, but challenges teachers to rally their expertise and enthusiasm so that student writers develop voice and speak for themselves.
