The Christensen Rhetoric Program.
Missouri English Bulletin, v26 n2 p9-12 Mar 1969
Designed to instruct teachers as well as high school or college students in improving their writing, the Christensen Rhetoric Program is a sequential, cumulative program, published in kit form. The kit includes a script with lectures for the teacher, directions for using 200 transparencies on an overhead projector, and student workbooks which correlate with the transparencies. Avoiding traditional discussions of errors, the program achieves a positive approach by examining sentences and paragraphs chosen from the work of almost 100 professional writers (e.g., Bellow, Churchill, Hemingway). A student completing this program gradually masters the construction of cumulative sentences through the use of free modifiers and improves not only his style but also his literary invention and organization.
