Teaching Style and the College Writing Class  [cached]
St. Rose, Marjorie
College Forum , 1997,
Abstract: This review questions the efficiency of the lecture method with particular reference to the teaching of English at the College of The Bahamas. Research studies and articles about current practice in college writing suggest that while the lecture method remains useful in subject areas dominated by transfer of large amounts of factual information, teaching methods in the English language arts have moved from product to process pedagogy, with a corresponding change from didactic to cooperative styles of teaching and learning. The writer recommends that college English classes utilize cooperative strategies.
The philosophical politics of J. F. Lyotard, or reflexive writing as a form of disengagement  [PDF]
Savi? Mile V.
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2004, DOI: 10.2298/fid0424009s
Abstract: The subject of this paper are the implications of Lyotard's critique of the intellectual as a public actor. It is shown that Lyotard's critique of politics results in a rejection of political theory, real politics and political involvement of the intellectual. In place of that, Lyotard develops his concept of "philosophical politics", i.e. "reflexive writing" as a specific form of political disengagement. The author argues that Lyotard's critique of the political involvement of the intellectual is acceptable, but that Lyotard's concept of "philosophical politics" cannot compensate for the lack of an acceptable real politics and an appropriate political theory. It can be viewed only as an individual-existential posture of resistance to the dominant political patterns which, as preconditions of its own possibility, must presuppose the existence of an acceptable real politics and appropriate political doctrine.
The Robredo Style: Philippine Local Politics in Transition
Takeshi Kawanaka
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 1998,
Abstract: Politics in the Philippines has been a matter of patronage. The political elite solicits the support of the relatively powerful who draw strength from the individually powerless voters for assistance. In return, the former will reward the latter with the fruits of influence and whatever else that was agreed upon. This relationship of patronage is renewed during elections and is understood as the way the political system worked until the late President Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law and did away with patronage politics. In its place came a more unilateral relationship which voided contracts with traditional power brokers. The Aquino administration facilitated the retum of patronage politics but at the same time introduced a new breed of leaders. One such politician is Naga City Mayor Jesse Robredo. Robredo consolidated popular support without the aid of mutually rewarding ties, a strong political machine or a monopoly of power. The manner in which he secured the maximum term of office and improved the lives of his constituents sets a new standard in governance. The author calls it the Robredo Style.

The gatherer style is suitable for authors who are preparing literature reviews and similar types of publication. A hunter style of writing is more appropriate when an author wants to describe work carried out, whether research, a quality improvement study, a clinical audit, a service evaluation or another project. In the hunter style, an author works through a systematic thought process and makes key decisions about the work the author wants to describe, before starting to write. The thought process includes defining what journal readers want to read about, answering key questions about the subject being written about and organising the ideas into a logical structure. Practical points about writing clearly also are provided.
Problem of the ′national style′ in the writing of Miloje Milojevi  [PDF]
Vasi? Aleksandar
Muzikologija , 2007, DOI: 10.2298/muz0707231v
Abstract: Dr. Miloje Milojevi (1884-1946) was a central figure in Serbian music criticism and academic essays between the World Wars. A large part of his writings on music were dedicated to the issue of the Serbian ′national music style′, its means of expression, and the question of modernity, i. e. to what extent modernity is desirable in the ′national style′. This paper analyzes some twenty articles - reviews, essays, and writings for special occasions - published by Milojevi between 1912 and 1942 in various Serbian newspapers magazines and collections: Srpski knji evni glasnik (The Serbian Literary Magazine, 1912, 1913, 1914, 1923, 1924, 1935), Prosvetni glasnik (The Educational Herald, 1914, 1921, 1942), Politika (The Politics, 1921, 1922 1923, 1937, 1938, 1940, 1941), Muzika (The Music, twice in 1928) Spomenica-album Udru enja muzikanata Kraljevine Jugoslavije 1928-1930 (The Commemorative Volume - The Album of the Society of Musicians of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia 1928-1930, 1930), Smena (The Change, 1938), and Slavenska muzika (The Slavonic Music, 1940). In the course of those thirty years Milojevi passionately believed that the future of Serbian music lies in the ′national style′, i.e. in the artistic transformation of anonymous Serbian folk songs and melodies. In spite of the changes of styles that occurred over the years, he never gave up anticipating the appearance of an ingenious composer who would develop the ′national style′ to its climax and enrich Serbian music with ′national′ symphonies, operas and chamber music. Milojevi was in favour of a ′national style′ mainly on principle. He rarely got into a discussion about the stylistic and technical means he considered most suitable for the ′national style′. In his text Na muzi ko umetni ki program (Our music and artistic programme), published in the Serbian Literary Magazine in 1913, and another article, Za folklornu muziku (In favour of Folk Music), published in the Belgrade daily newspaper Politics in 1921, he recommended that Serbian ′national style′ composers followed the model of some representatives of the European national schools of romanticism impressionism and moderately modern music. In a special kind of manifesto Za ideju umetnosti i umetni kog nacionalizma kod nas (In favour of the idea of art and artistic nationalism in Serbia), published in 1935 in the Serbian Literary Magazine, he gave an indirect answer to the question of which means of musical expression he preferred in the ′national style′. For example, he singled out the composition Sever duva (North Wind) by Kosta P. Manojlovi (
The Least, The Most: Hemingway’s writing style  [cached]
Qin YU
Canadian Social Science , 2009,
Abstract: Hemingway’s style of writing is striking, he is skillful in using the “pause” and is considered as a master of the “pause” in literature. Hemingway, in contrast to romantic writers, puts stress on restraint and understatement. The most powerful effect comes from them. People feel overtones in his description of scenes, in his characters’ actions, in the dialogues and also in his psychological portraying. Hemingway’s spirit is under the silent surface, and his pause has the sense of beauty. Key words: pause, restraint, understatement Résumé: Le style d’écrit chez Hemingway est frappant , il est habile en l’usage de “ pause ” et est considéré comme ma tre de “pause” dans la littérature . Par rapport des autres écrivains romantiques , Hemingway met l’accent sur la sobriété et la litote , dont provient l’effet le plus puissant . On constate des sous-entendus dans sa description des scènes , dans les actions des héros , dans les dialogues ainsi que dans les descriptions psychologiques . L’esprit de Hemingway est derrière la surface silencieuse , et son “ pause ” a le sens de beauté . Mots-clés: pause, sobriété, litote

Yaochen Xie
English Language Teaching , 2008, DOI: 10.5539/elt.v1n2p156
Abstract: Among many great American writers, Hemingway is famous for his objective and terse prose style. As all the novels Hemingway published in his life, The Old Man and the Sea typically reflects his unique writing style. The language is simple and natural on the surface, but actually deliberate and artificial. Hemingway’s style is related to his experience as a journalist. The influence of his style is great all over the world. The Old Man and the Sea is full of facts, most of which comes from Hemingway own experience. In the forepart of the novel, they are used to show the quality of Santiago’s life, and are narrated simply and naturally; while in the latter part of the novel, they are used from inside Santiago’s own consciousness and form part of a whole scheme of the novel.
Escritura inicial y estilo cognitivo Initial Writing and Cognitive Style
Lida Johana Rincón Camacho,Christian Hederich Martínez
Folios , 2012,
Abstract: Resumen Se examinaron los efectos comparados de dos métodos para la ense anza de la escritura en el nivel inicial: global y silábico y su interacción con el estilo cognitivo en la dimensión de dependencia-independencia de campo (DIC), en 31 ni os de dos grupos escolares de primer grado de primaria, de dos instituciones diferentes, en donde cada uno de los métodos de venían implementando. Se aplicaron la prueba CEFT para la determinación del estilo cognitivo y la prueba de escritura ''ejercicio de creación de texto'' al inicio del a o escolar del primer grado y cuatro meses después. Los resultados finales fueron examinados a través de análisis de covarianza en los que se controlaron, como covariables, los logros registrados cuatro meses antes. Los datos muestran evidentes ventajas del método global sobre el método silábico en términos generales, y muy específicamente para los ni os de estilo dependiente de campo o intermedio en seis de los ocho los indicadores examinados. Estos resultados son explicados a partir de características distintivas del estilo cognitivo en esta dimensión. Abstract Comparative effects of two methods used for teaching writing at the initial level were examined: the global and syllabic approaches and their interaction with cognitive style in the field dependence-independence dimension (FDI), in 31 first-grade children from two school groups and from two different institutions, where each one of the methods were implemented. CEFT test was applied to determine the cognitive style, and a writing test called "text-building exercise" was also used at the beginning of the academic year and four months later. The final results were esamined through covariance analysis, in which the achievements recorded four months earlier were controlled as covariates. In general, data show clear advantages of the global method over the syllabic method, specifically for field-dependent and intermediate style children in six out of eight indicators examined. These results are explained on the basis of distinctive features of the cognitive style in this dimension.

Crossing the Border: International Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies , 2013, DOI: 10.3126/ctbijis.v1i1.10468
Abstract: This article analyses the erotic relationships between sexes depicted in Arundhati Roy’s novel The God of Small things in the binary opposition: those based on bourgeois patriarchal dominance and that based on equality and mutual respect. It focuses on the relationship between Ammu and Velutha as love, in diametrical contrast with the former pattern, based on independent choices and guided and inspired by radical politics.

On Writing  [PDF]
Kuangming Wu
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2018.84020
Abstract: We regularly write to shape daily engagement accordingly. We freely shape writing that shapes us, and through us to shape our lifeworld. Writing creates things continually via our writing that creates us. Writing is itself most fragile and ephemeral, only to turn incorruptible and invincible, world without end.
