OP 06. Narrative Knowers, Expository Knowledge: Discourse as Dialectic

By Anne DiPardo

Summary: DiPardo explores the schism between narrative and exposition and argues that instruction which fosters a "grand leap" away from narrative into the presumably more grown-up world of expository prose denies students the development of a complex way of knowing and seeing, robbing them of critical developmental experience with language. January, 1989; 34 pages.
