Anyone working in the field of language arts knows the major impact Active Voice has had in curriculum development. The program Moffett outlines in his text ten years ago helped to pioneer now will-established practices like workshops, the process approach, writing portfolios, and writing across the curriculum. Ideal for use as a classroom sourcebook for individual teachers, an inservice text by schools and school districts, or as a supplement to the main textbook in a methods course, Active Voice transformed theory into practice, helping educators deliberate how to initiate a total writing program-even one going beyond English.
In this edition, Active Voice has been expanded to include student samples of the writing activities recommended in the text. From monologues and autobiography to narratives and essay, Moffett discusses particular compositional issues arising form each type of writing and provides innovative way of treating them.
A new chapter, "Bridges: From Personal Writing to the Formal Essay," is included in response to demand for help with this key writing issue.
