Appearing Acts: Creating Readers in a High School English Class.
Cone, Joan Kernan
Harvard Educational Review, v64 n4 p450-73 Win 1994
Student journals, reading materials appropriate for interests and cultural background, and collaborative reflection were techniques used by a teacher to create in her students a community of readers. She examined students' self-perceptions as "readers" and "nonreaders," concluding that schools must include independent reading, allow students to choose texts, and make talk an essential part of reading.
