Active Voice: A Writing Program across the Curriculum.
Intended for content area teachers and faculty, this booklet provides a coherent program for building a school-wide composition curriculum. The first section contains an explanation of the program and its background, including sequence and classroom processes. The major portion of the booklet is divided into three groups of assignments. Group one contains exercises for revising inner speech, such as stream of consciousness, spontaneous memory monologue, and composed reflection. The exercises in group two, dialogs and monologs, include interior and exterior monologs, one act plays, and dialogs converted to essay. The third group deals with converting narrative into essay through exercises such as correspondence, diary, eyewitness memoir, directions, research, and theory. The book concludes with a list of collateral readings and a discussion of point of view in writing. (HTH)
