Exploring the 3 R's: Reading, 'Riting, and Responding.
Perkins, Terry; Weissinger, Lynne
State of Reading, v2 n2 p17-27 Fall 1995
Uses response journals to explore the ways fourth-grade students respond to literature. Finds factors necessary to mesh text and a reader's personal experiences: a classroom atmosphere that encourages risk-taking; daily opportunities to read and respond; a wide variety of choices in reading materials; modeling of good reading strategies; and freedom of choice in reading selection and responding.
