Middle Grade Students' Responses to Canadian Realistic Fiction for Young Adults.
Latshaw, Jessica L. K.
Canadian Journal of Education, v16 n2 p168-83 Spr 1991
Student responses to Canadian realistic fiction for young adults were examined for four seventh grade girls and three seventh grade boys. Interview findings support the view that students should have a role in selecting what they read, should talk about reading informally, and should construct representations less influenced by teacher responses.
