Pages 54-55 in the PHG provide a list of useful techniques for writing about observations
and the ways in which an author can limit or FOCUS on the specific details of an observation in order
to present a "dominant idea" that reflects the writer's PURPOSE. A passage from Isak Dinesen's
Out of Africa provides an example. If you want to make a transparency of the listed
techniques, click on the link below. Read the pages so that you will be able to explain and
