Forming and Meaning: Writing the Counterpoint Essay.
Chapman, David W.
Journal of Advanced Composition, v11 n1 p73-81 Win 1991
Notes that, although many composition teachers talk about the need to find "organic" forms in composing, students are often content to organize their writing in formulaic ways. Discusses the difficulties in teaching form arising from students focusing on a particular form's requirements instead of its functions. Discusses using the counterpoint essay in the classroom. (RS)
