How does the running style differ from the periodic style? What do "high, middle, and low" prose style mean? How might one apply the classical terminology of rhetorical figures to prose analysis?

It is necessary to integrate literature in the field of education, students will not only get the competence or certain knowledge of the subject, they can also learn to become better people in the future. The Sanata Dharma English Education Study Program continuously and consistently maintains it by having several literary courses. There is an Introduction to Literature, Prose, Poetry, Drama, and Play Performance. The author combines Ignatian Pedagogy as the spirit of Sanata Dharma University, including the use of technology "Learning" as a learning platform, and the latest news related to the topics in this book. The author hopes that readers will explore and understand themselves in order to act in the future after completing all this. The use of technology is applied by completing exercises that can improve their language skills and publish the results to "Learn" so they can learn together. In accordance with the material, this book not only provides a number of short stories and novels related to education from outside our beloved country such as Miss Awful, the Scholarship Jacket, Tobermory, Everything Changes, Two Friends, Happy Prince and Toto Chan. This paper also provides some exercises and discussion about the Javanese Princess Letter which is a compilation of Raden Ajeng Kartini's letters to her Dutch friends in the English version. This is done as an effort to find out the history of education in Indonesia and it is hoped that readers will not only study education in different countries but also reflect education in Indonesia.

"True to its title, Revising Prose is about revising, not about original composition. It will not teach you how to pray for inspiration, marshall your thoughts, or find the willpower to glue backside to chair. All writers face these dragons in their own idiosyncratic ways. But revision belongs to the public domain. Anyone can learn it. Revising Prose teaches you how, using a simple, rule-based, eight-step process called "The Paramedic Method" that concentrates on turning the bureaucratic official style so common today in business and government writing into plain English. Its focus on the individual sentence enables you to identify the surplus verbiage (what Lanham calls the Lard Factor) in an effort like this: The history of new regulatory provisions is that there is generally an immediate resistance to them. And turn it into this: People usually resist new regulations. A Lard Factor of 69%. Lanham's method aims to eliminate 50% from most writing, to create a sentence half as long and twice as strong. A saving of 50% in writing time, in reading time, in paper and screen space, in human patience and understanding-it all adds up to real money. It also adds up to a more persuasive and amiable presentation of self, as Revising Prose argues in its final chapter. "

A study investigated whether adult anglophone readers of French could be taught to use the organizational patterns (top-level structures, or TLSs) in expository text and whether they could then use this knowledge (the structure strategy) to facilitate reading comprehension as measured quantitatively through immediate free recall. Subjects were 43 university students of high intermediate level French proficiency divided into experimental (n=21) and control (n=22) groups. The experimental group received training in the use of five TLSs: description; sequence; causation; problem solution; and comparison. Training concentrated on use of the TLSs and their corresponding signal words as strategy for promoting recall. All subjects were pre- and posttested for reading comprehension and recall. Subjects also completed rating scales to estimate text difficulty, memorability, affect, interest, background knowledge, clarity of argument, organization, recommendations, content, and discussion of content. Results indicate that: text topic was a significant factor in recall, suggesting that effects of training in structure strategy cannot be predicted across topics; more proficient readers appeared to have the structure strategy already, and those trained in it had improved recall; structure strategy is teachable; reading time was not significantly related to recall; and longer passages seemed to offer no disadvantages.
