Responding to Literature; Guide to the Film Series. Protokollon.
Lid, R. W.; Handler, Philip
The Protocol Materials in English (PME) project was set up to study literature and the teaching of literature in an effort to determine whether it is possible to discover hierarchies of concepts and to create materials to illustrate those concepts. In the film series "Responding to Literature," the category system presented has as its point of reference the source within a literary work of the reader's response. The ten aspects of the literary work that have been identified in this guide for "Responding to Literature" are those that produce responses in readers and that readers talk about. Six concepts deal with the contents of literature, three with literary form, and one with the author in the work. The section of this guide devoted to the ten films in the series contains an explanation of the concepts each film is illustrating, a summary of the major points made in each film, and appropriate activities for preservice and inservice settings. In addition, there are essays about theories of reader response and the use of category systems in the teaching of English. (RB)
