ANANSE TALES, MANUAL, A COURSE IN CONTROLLED COMPOSITION.
DYKSTRA, GERALD; AND OTHERS
AN ILLUSTRATED SET OF AFRICAN ANIMAL TALES HAS BEEN SELECTED AND LINGUISTICALLY STRUCTURED FOR PRACTICE IN WRITING ENGLISH COMPOSITION. FIRST USED BY FOREIGN STUDENTS AT TEACHERS COLLEGE, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, AND BY SIXTH-GRADE STUDENTS (NATIVE SPEAKERS OF ENGLISH) IN MASSACHUSETTS, THESE MATERIALS ARE NOW BEING USED BY VARIOUS GROUPS IN THE UNITED STATES AND IN AFRICA. EACH OF THE 42 PASSAGES IS FOLLOWED BY A SET OF DIRECTIONS FOR GRADED EXERCISES. STRICTLY CONTROLLED, THESE EXERCISES RANGE FROM SIMPLE COPYING AND REWRITING TO MORE COMPLEX TRANSFORMATIONS AND FREE CREATIVE COMPOSITION. THE FORMAT IS DESIGNED TO ALLOW THE STUDENT TO REPEAT A STEP AT A GIVEN LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY AS OFTEN AS NECESSARY WITHOUT REPEATING PREVIOUS SUBJECT MATTER. THE ACCOMPANYING TEACHER'S MANUAL PROVIDES DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS FOR TEACHING EACH STEP, AS WELL AS TIME-SAVING SUGGESTIONS FOR CORRECTING. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED BY THE TEACHERS COLLEGE PRESS, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, NEW YORK, NEW YORK 10027, 65 PAGES. (AMM)
