A Zen Approach to Campus Media Centers for Teachers of Literature.
Kregor, Karl H.
Experience gained in a Trinity University workshop conducted during the summer of 1972 has shown that, through the creation of multimedia interpretations of poems and stories, students' literary skills, as well as their sensitivities toward and respect for language, can be enhanced beyond the levels attainable through traditional lecture formats. Each of the following steps for creating multimedia productions--emphasizing the complementary aspects of verbal and nonverbal modes of communication--includes the writing of an explanatory essay: selecting a congenial author; choosing a literary piece suitable for presentation; reading the selection aloud and editing where necessary; searching for visual and aural materials important to the interpretation; and coordinating, rehearsing, and presenting the material. Effective, taped productions can have wide campus use and serve a variety of purposes. (JM)
