Applied Grammar: A Study of Writing as Process
|Title:||Applied Grammar: A Study of Writing as Process|

|Abstract:||The Broad Problem: For many years teachers and laymen have been bewailing the poor composition skills that students have. (12) Journalists, professionals in the field, concerned parents and overworked teachers have all becried the inability of the student to write. A survey of the literature dealing with this problem revealed to me a dismaying lack of research into what are the skills of composition and how to teach these skills to the composition student. The Specific Problem: Francis Christensen has been writing tor several years exhorting teachers to utilize the insights and principles of Generative or Transformational Grammar (2), but the literature dealing with this subject displays a lack of acceptance of these concepts into the composition units being taught in the public schools.
