Discovering Voice: Lessons to Teach Reading and Writing of Complex Text

Discovering Voice is a collection of classroom exercises that helps students deeply understand the reading and writing of complex text. The lessons, which cover diction, detail, figurative language, imagery, syntax, and tone, help students understand voice in what they read and encourage them to develop a strong, personal voice in their own writing. Every voice lesson includes a quotation selected from a wide range of fiction and nonfiction text, two discussion questions, and an exercise that encourages students to practice what they have learned about the elements of voice. These lessons are specifically designed for students in middle and high school.    The lessons provide focused practice for a specific element of voice and take only 10 to 20 minutes of class time. Discovering Voice lessons fit well with any curriculum. As students work with the elements that comprise voice, they will improve their ability to critically analyze text. Students will also learn to apply the elements of voice to their own writing, creating a clear voice of their own.

School Library Connection - Samantha Roslund, School Librarian, Harper Creek H.S., Battle Creek, MI

"With test scores and comprehension suffering in America's schools, many educators are looking to find new methodology that will provide greater understanding and improved conceptual thinking and expression for their students. The text identifies increased, daily writing exercises as a means of developing voice and comes at a perfect time when new research is emerging that supports more writing in the curriculum. Dean covers diction, detail, figurative language, imagery, syntax, and tone, specifically, and provides several exercises for each topic. . . .Recommended." - School Library Connection
