The 12 chapters are as follows: (1) Context; a Composing Class; (2) Generative Frame: Actions and Reactions; (3) Generative Frame: Varieties of Textuality; (4) Applications: Syntax as a Notch on the Evolutionary Ladder; (5) Generative Frame: The Possibilities of Narrative; (6) Generative Frame: Being a Participant, Being a Spectator; (7) Applications: Writers as Participants; (8) Applications: Writers as Spectators; (9) Generative Frame: Role; (10) Applications: Student Writers in Role; (11) Generative Frame: Familiarization and Defamiliarization; and (12) Overview: The Shape of the Semester.
