Listen to This: Developing an Ear for Expository.
Freeman, Marcia S.
Suggesting that students in grades 4-12 can develop their ear for expository writing and improve their skills by having well-written expository pieces read to them regularly, this book contains a broad variety of sample expository read-aloud pieces with accompanying notes that highlight the techniques each writer has used particularly well. After a preface and foreword, it discusses developing an ear for expository writing and then presents an expository writing primer. It next presents 18 samples of expository writing suitable for reading aloud. Contains 60 sources for further read-aloud samples, tips from the pros for young expository writers, two lesson plans, and 10 references (RS)
