Teacher Understanding of Student Understanding: Revising the Gap between Teacher Conceptions and Students' Ways with Literature.
Hamel, Fred L.
Research in the Teaching of English, v38 n1 p49-84 Aug 2003
Examines three English teachers' conceptions of their students' literary understandings. Explores how the three case-study teachers framed reading in generalized terms separated from the concerns of literature as a discipline, and how the teachers' own experienced ways of reading literature played a role in directing attention away from learner competencies and toward the content concerns of a literature classroom.
