In Discovering Voice, Nancy Dean creates a prequel to Voice Lessons specifically designed for teaching the elements of voice to students in middle and early high school. The lessons on diction, detail, figurative language, imagery, syntax, and tone help students understand the concept of voice in what they read and develop a strong, personal voice in their own writing.

Each voice lesson includes a quotation selected from a wide range of literature, two discussion questions, and an exercise that encourages students to practice what they have learned about the elements of voice.

Discovering Voice also offers a collection of quotations students can use to create their own voice lessons. Discussion suggestions for each voice lesson and additional activities for teaching voice enhance the scope and instructional value of the resource.

Each Discovering Voice lesson provides focused practice for a specific element of voice and takes only ten to twenty minutes of class time to complete. The lessons fit well with any curriculum. As students work with the elements that comprise voice, they will improve their ability to critically analyze literature. The lessons carry over into student writing, as they begin to consciously apply the same voice skills to their own work.

"Lessons on diction, detail, figurative language, imagery, syntax, and tone are designed to teach the elements of voice to middle and high school students. Each lesson includes a quotation selected from a wide range of literature, two discussion questions, and an exercise that encourages students to practice what they have learned about the elements of voice. The lessons are written with activities that fit into a ten- to twenty-minute timeframe. Language arts teachers will be delighted to have new lessons which will help students learn to apply voice to their own writing, creating a clear voice of their own. Included at the end are additional activities for teaching voice. Middle school and high school teachers will treasure this book."
