How Porcupines Make Love II: Teaching a Response-Centered Literature Curriculum.
Purves, Alan C.; And Others
Written in the same spirit as the earlier edition but thoroughly revised and updated, this book is designed to make teachers aware of reader-response theory and its implications for literature instruction and curriculum. The book demonstrates how a response-centered curriculum brings students to a greater understanding of all forms of literature in today's culture and helps them engage in clearer, sharper thinking. The edition includes new chapters on the nature of adolescence; the cultural literacy movement and the insistence on teaching theory; the effects on literacy of television, video recorders, and computers; and more attention to standardized tests and how teachers can deal with them.
