Editteach: Two good examples from NPR
If you are teaching writing and editing, you could do worse than to have students listen to these two examples from NPR
(I like using audio to help teach because it shows the power of creating pictures in people's heads while also being a bit more dimensional than just print. It also shows the necessity for all writers to use their ears and eyes in ways to pick up details like nat sound that yo can then describe in text.)
Wade Goodwyn's moving and detailed story about troops returning home in December 2-11
Tracy Samilton's fun story today about how Craftsman decided to debut a riding lawnmower at the Detroit Auto Show (unfortunately, the transcript has taken some of the life and fun out of the story - make sure you listen).
