Part 1: Thinking Out of the Pro-Verbal Box.
Williams, Sean D.
Computers and Composition, v18 n1 p21-32 2001
Notes that basing composition almost exclusively on verbal instruction counters the very nature of literacy education, because the current verbal-based education system produces illiterates in this highly visual and multimodal modern society. Demonstrates composition's verbal bias; argues that this bias is both politically and rhetorically suspect; and calls for a composition pedagogy that integrates verbal instruction with visual instruction.
