Writing to Be Read
"Writing to Be Read" is the high school version of "Telling Writing." This third edition reaffirms Ken Macrorie's continuing commitment to young writers, as well as the perennial popularity of "Writing to Be Read." Like all fine teachers, Macrorie has remained a student of his subject, and this book is informed by fresh classroom discoveries.
The book embodies a carefully articulated writing course that gives students the freedom to find their voices and let their subjects find them.
