Rethinking Reader Response with Fifth Graders' Semiotic Interpretations
Barone, Diane; Barone, Rebecca
Reading Teacher, v71 n1 p23-31 Jul-Aug 2017
Fifth graders interpreted the book "Doll Bones" by Holly Black through visual representations from the beginning to the end of the book. Each visual representation was analyzed to determine how students responded. Most frequently, they moved to inferential ways of understanding. Students often visually interpreted emotional plot elements and incorporated words, graffiti, and graphic organizers into their responses.
