This book invites teachers and students to taste and hear and move to the music of words, words in isolation and in interesting juxtapositions, and urges them to bring their own life experience to language, showing in turn how language can help them know that experience more fully.
The book offers a chapter on how to appreciate the different vocabularies used in a big city newspaper-in sports writing, book and TV reviews, news reporting, editorials, and science writing.
Dancing with Words_ uses practical and fun activities with words to invite students to a lifelong dance with language.
