Expectation and Cohesion. Curriculum Publication No. 7.
Pradl, Gordon M.
This booklet is one of a series of teacher-written curriculum publications launched by the Bay Area Writing Project, each focusing on a different aspect of the teaching of composition. The basic principles of literary cohesion (the way a text hangs together) are discussed and exercises are suggested to help students increase their sensitivity to and mastery of language. Exercises include the use of disjointed word frames, cloze procedure, context cues, sentence combining, and analyzing text using the cohesive devices of reference, substitution, conjunction, word patterns, and ellipsis.
