[Special Composition Issue.]
Butler, John; And Others
Kansas English, v58 n1 p1-38 Dec 1972
This edition of the "Bulletin of the Kansas Association of Teachers of English" consists primarily of articles on composition, with special attention to the composing process. John F. Butler, in "On Teaching Composition," discusses strategies for meeting two goals in college composition: teaching the more artful use of language and teaching the act of composing. John H. Bushman, Sandra Jones, and Sandra Zerger, in "The Thematic Unit and the Composing Process," describe how thematic units, sometimes in the form of mini-courses, can be used to stimulate theme topics. The emphasis, the writers argue, should be on the process of learning, rather than on the "product"; the approach is a balance between traditional and contemporary subject matter, with a student-centered curriculum. Nancy Vogel, in "'Exitus,' the Videotape That Went to Boston: 'A Momentary Stay against Confusion,'" reports on how the class construction of a videotape served to teach the fundamental composition processes.
