Connecting Students with the Human Dimensions in Literature: Using Bruner's Modes of Thought to Deepen Literary Appreciation
McConn, Matthew
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v2 n2 p106-116 Win 2014
Many times students are directed to make a personal connection to literature without being guided toward how their connection works interdependently with the structure of the narrative to create a greater meaning, much less directed toward how this connection can hold meaning for their own lives. Through student samples, this article attempts to show how a combination of two different modes of thought gives teachers a framework for literary appreciation that facilitates a deeper understanding of the connections students make to the works they read, as well as the way students apply the literature to their own lives
