Composition: A Media Approach.
Tuttle, Frederick B., Jr.
This book explores the many visually oriented activities that can be used to teach the composition process. Chapter one outlines the format of the book and discusses the composition process in terms of visual perception and reaction to visual stimuli. Chapter two introduces the general aspects of composition that are pertinent to all types of written composition. Chapter three discusses the aspects of literary composition that result in either a narration or a piece of personal/creative writing. Chapter four discusses exposition and those aspects of writing that will help a student explain an idea or analyze a process. Class activities that use visual materials are suggested for each of these writing categories. The final chapter discusses meaningful grading procedures. An appendix provides production hints for slides, filmstrips, "visual pillows," overhead transparencies, roller movies, string paintings, and magnetic or flannel boards. (RL)
