Close Encounters of the First Kind: Teaching the Poem at the Point of Utterance.
Pradl, Gordon M.
English Journal, v76 n2 p66-69 Feb 1987
Relates the story of a classroom experience that serves to show what is meant by both primary and secondary acts of reading. Argues that teaching the poem at the point of utterance makes it clear that the poem is not simply an occasion for a set of questions to which students must supply answers. (JD)
