Focusing on synthesis--the ability to recognize and create new ideas that subsume and relate to others--as one of the most sophisticated skills writers can attain, the articles in this journal present many ideas for teaching synthesis and a number of classroom approaches that combine the study of English with other fields. The following titles and authors are included: (1) "Cognitive Development through Synthesis" (S. L. Dean); (2) "On the Value of Secondary Sources as Teaching Materials" (M. B. Mandel); (3) "Sit-Com in the Classroom" (T. Capossela); (4) "Beginning at the Beginning: Synthesis and the Research Paper" (B. Allison); (5) "'Today in English We Studied French...': Using Literature to Bridge the Liberal Arts" (J. F. Bonfiglio); (6) "A Review of Teaching Environmental Literature: Materials, Methods, Resources" (K. W. Lampert); (7) "An Old Way of Thinking New or Synthesis in an Age of Specialization" (T. Dunn); and (8) "Robert Frost and the Teaching of Summary, Synthesis, Critical Analysis, and Research" (R. D. Keller). (JD)
