How to Write an Effective Composition
Author and educator Morris Schreiber presents a spoken-word recording on writing an effective composition. The recording is composed of two lectures, “Narrative and Descriptive Writing” and “Exposition: Organizing and Writing an Essay.” In the first lecture, Schreiber uses passages from Charles Dickens’
A Tale of Two Cities
to illustrate how to create a scene, and then he moves the reader through the scene to its conclusion. In the second lecture, Schreiber creates a scenario between a teacher and student on how to organize thoughts and ideas into a logical sequence. He closes by recognizing and correcting common writing errors. A complete transcript of the lectures is included in the liner notes.
