Response-Analysis Statements have the reader:


The first was combining oral and written instruction with thinking about the readers response journals.

Student hand outs where the students fill out a worksheet.

There was a great deal of information in the strategies that revolved around readers responses for older students.

There are several approaches to the reader response journals that were used in this article .

I read this story a few years ago, and it was on my mind last year when I visited South Central High School. I had an author visit with three classes, and saw first hand how things have changed there over the years. The shool has an on-going committment to remember the past whild continually reching for the future (God, I know I sound like an advertisement, but I was totally moved by what I saw and felt while in the building, and visiting the museum next door.) People there, both white and black, do not forget the horrors those kids had to go through, and the book is highlighted in the museum.


Reader's Response to Literature

Three broader reader response questions to put all this into a nutshell:

Schwarz explains that subjective reader-response critics would respond to a question such as this by answering that each reader uses the literary work to symbolize his or her own life and, therefore, each response is unique to the individual reader....

Systematic instruction is carefully sequenced, so that easier skills are taught before more difficult skills. Letter–sound correspondences and phonics skills (i.e., sounding out words, applying the "silent e rule") are taught in a predetermined order according to a clear scope and sequence so that there are no gaps in students' learning. The pace of introduction of new material is reasonable to allow struggling learners to master key skills, and much of each lesson consists of practice of previously introduced skills, strategies, and concepts and the integration of these with the newly taught material. Students' learning is monitored, so that teachers can reteach key skills when needed.
