Teaching the Reading Process.
Matalene, Carolyn B.
Analogies between the reading and writing processes can be drawn from a method of teaching literature that is based on Louise Rosenblatt's transactional theory of reading. The prime responsibilities of teachers of literature are to allow students the right to experience the text for themselves, arriving at their own interpretations, and to make students conscious of the process of reading literature. This process involves the same cognitive operations that are performed in the writing process: collecting material, questioning material, establishing internal connections, discovering emotional responses, revising, and evaluating. Teaching reading and writing as congruent processes can make the achievement of both mutually reinforcing. (AEA)
