Three Syns.
Larsen, Richard B.
Journal of Teaching Writing, v5 n2 p307-14 Fall 1986
Introduces three terms--synapsis, synesthesia, and synergy--applied to writing instruction as heuristic concepts. Describes classroom exercises, such as removing transitions from an essay and asking students to restore synaptic life to the paragraphs, viewing painting masterpieces to find analogous aesthetic concepts in written composition, and using approaches from other disciplines (e.g., Venn diagrams or psychological models) in writing.
