Constructing Real and Text Worlds in Responding to Literature.
Beach, Richard
Theory into Practice, v37 n3 p176-85 Sum 1998
By having students use their knowledge of real-world cultural contexts to construct text-world contexts, teachers help them understand how cultural forces within those contexts shape characters' actions. This paper describes the process of linking real- and text-world contexts, offering examples from one college class. Implications for helping students link their real- and text-world experiences are noted. (SM)
