Author and Audience.
Saunders, Dorothy O.
The relationship between audience and story-teller can be the most dynamic factor in composition by young people. However, the child must know that his creative endeavors will be presented to an audience which is favorably disposed toward him and which will offer only appreciative constructive criticism. Through noting the responses of his audience to his story-telling, the child learns to manipulate narrative techniques for the best effect. In addition to varying the presentation, he will often alter the direction of the narrative in anticipation of the audience's response. When he himself is a part of the audience, the child learns by comparing his reactions to those of other students. With this favorable audience rapport, the child is free to experiment with new techniques of narrative composition and is able to take satisfaction in his achievements. (LH)
