Commonplace Books and the Teaching of Style.
Gaillet, Lynee Lewis
Journal of Teaching Writing, v15 n2 p285-94 1996
Advocates the use of commonplace books (a time-honored way for students to collect, analyze, and reflect on the writings, thoughts, and rhetorical strategies of others) as a means of teaching style integrated with other components of rhetoric. Argues that students become closer readers and critical thinkers about the nature of ideas and language and adept manipulators of words and stylistic options. (SR)
