This book is a collection of absorbing and thought-provoking questionnaires and quizzes with related activities for students of English at upper-intermediate and more advanced levels. Questions requiring a personal response from the reader can serve as an enjoyable and provocative starting-point for fluency practice in the language classroom. The book is designed for use in the classroom, but much of the material can be used by students working alone. Those sections best suited to the individual reader are indicated by a special symbol in the text. At the end of the book both teachers and students will find guidelines on how to work through the units. A chart is also included to show how the activities can link up with main course work.

Speaking Personally

This book argues that the personal voice, which is often disparaged in journalism teaching, is and always has been a prevalent form of journalism.

This book argues that the personal voice, which is often disparaged in journalism teaching, is and always has been a prevalent form of journalism. Paradoxically, the aim of 'objective' reporters is often to be known for a distinctive 'voice'. This personal voice is becoming increasingly visible in the context of 'the confessional society'.

Responding to contemporary discussion about using personal accounts in academic writing, Personally Speaking: Experience as Evidence in Academic Discourse draws on classical and current rhetorical theory, feminist theory, and relevant examples from both published writers and first-year writing students to illustrate the advantages of blending experiential and academic perspectives. Candace Spigelman examines how merging personal and scholarly worldviews produces useful contradictions and contributes to a more a complex understanding in academic writing. This rhetorical move allows for greater insights than the reading or writing of experiential or academic modes separately does. Personally Speaking foregrounds the semi-fictitious nature of personal stories and the rhetorical possibilities of evidence as Spigelman provides strategies for writing instructors who want to teach personal academic argument while supplying practical mechanisms for evaluating experiential claims. The volume seeks to complicate and intensify disciplinary debates about how compositionists should write for publication and what kinds of writing should be taught to composition students. Spigelman not only supplies evidence as to why the personal can count as evidence but also relates how to use it effectively by including student samples that reflect particular features of personal writing. Finally, she lays the groundwork to move narrative from its current site as confessional writing to the domain of academic discourse.
