EXPECTING THE UNEXPECTED Teaching Myself--and Others--to Read and Write Writing Donald M. Murray
From the book's cover:
EXPECTING THE UNEXPECTED is a collection of twenty-four articles written since the publication of the author's highly acclaimed Learning by Teaching (Boynton/Cook, 1982). Divided into four parts--Listening to the Page, Learning by Sharing, Exploring Form, and Sitting to Write--the book includes both previously published and unpublished pieces that present a record of personal explorations into the process of writing and teaching writing. Included in the unpublished pieces are excerpts from handouts written for students, case histories of the author's own writing, and a running commentary that puts the reading in context.
Inspirational and honest, Expecting the Unexpected is a celebration of surprise; it is one writer/teacher's account of how to expect the unexpected and how, even, to encourage, nurture, and make use of it.
